What is the A3HN?

The Australian Health, Housing and Homelessness Network (A3HN) brings together experts, researchers, practitioners and people with lived experience of the three sectors to support each other’s efforts to end homelessness. By connecting a diverse range of participants from around the country, the network aims to better integrate policy, research and practice across the health, housing and homelessness sectors.

Coordinated by the Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH), the network was formed to ensure the health-informed implementation of the Advance to Zero campaign, which seeks to end all homelessness in Australia starting with rough sleeping, one community at a time.

Through the use of a national forum, the A3HN pioneers the development of policy, furthers research and enhances practice. It enables members to share knowledge, guidelines and models of care, as well as coordinate national advocacy efforts together.

By uniting three key sectors, the network is well placed to support those addressing the health and housing needs of people experiencing homelessness in Australia.

As a network, we have a focus on a variety of objectives, which are available for you to review in our briefing document.

How to get involved

The opportunities for engaging with the A3HN range from monthly online meetings, a workshop at the biennial Advance to Zero Summit as well as the occasional online forum.
