There are public health associations, societies, academies, etc., in many nations and some regional aggregates of nations. Most are dedicated to advancing the public health in their nation and region. Membership is usually open to persons in all professions engaged in public health practice and research and sometimes also to members of the general public as individuals or representatives of consumer organizations, etc. They include the American Public Health Association (http://www.apha.org), the Canadian Public Health Association (http://www.cpha.ca), the Public Health Association of Australia, the European Public Health Association (http://www.eupha.org), and many others. Most arrange annual meetings of their members, and many belong to regional and worldwide networks of public health organizations, notably the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA). Almost all are listed on the WFPHA Web site, http://www.wfpha.org, with links to the organizations' Web sites.
