Our Associates

Andrology Australia operates a unique collaborative program on men’s health by drawing on the expertise of leading health and education experts from across the country.

Expert advisors

Our panel of external expert advisors, comprising approximately 70 key experts, continues to support the objectives of Andrology Australia by providing advice on the key issues relating to community and professional education and research together with the review of educational material developed by Andrology Australia.

Affiliate program

An affiliate program was established in response to outcomes from the inaugural Andrology Australia Advisory Forum (May 2007) and review of the programs organisational structure. The program aims to recognise those individuals who commit their time and expertise to the program with a range of benefits for their involvement.

Working groups

Working groups are established to assist with the implementation of some of Andrology Australia’s activities by designing, developing and initiating a program of activity consistent with the Andrology Australia objectives. Members of working groups, which include Andrology Australia representatives, represent individuals from across Australia with expertise in the specific project area.
