About Us

We aim to influence health promotion policy and practice and build the capacity of Healthway and its Western Australian constituency through the discovery and communication of knowledge.

The Health Promotion Evaluation Unit (HPEU) was established in 1996. It replaced the Health Promotion Development and Evaluation Program (HPDEP), established in 1992 as a joint independent academic program of the Department of Public Health and the Graduate School of Management at The University of Western Australia. Between 1996 and 2008 HPEU operated under the auspice of the School of Population Health at UWA. HPEU currently operates within the School of Sport Science Exercise and Health at UWA.
