Strategic Inter-Governmental Forum on Physical Activity and Health (SIGPAH)

In 1999, the Strategic Inter-Government forum on Physical Activity and Health (SIGPAH) was established under the auspices of the National Public Health Partnership, as the collaborative body to coordinate a national approach in supporting health-promoting physical activity in Australia.

SIGPAH provides national leadership for government action in physical activity and health issues across Australia. SIGPAH comprises representation from:

  • all state and territory health departments
  • the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing
  • the Australian Sports Commission and
  • the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

SIGPAH seeks to encourage all Australians to be physically active to improve health and wellbeing. SIGPAH's work will assist the National Public Health Partnership in its aim to protect and promote the health of all Australians.
