The Public Health Advocacy Institute of Western Australia have created the Advocacy in Action: A Toolkit for Public Health Professionals, now in its second edition.

The toolkit is a practical resource that supports and encourages health professionals and interested organisations to engage in advocacy. The Advocacy in Action toolkit:

  • Demystifies advocacy,
  • Includes examples and case studies demonstrating how advocacy strategies can be applied across different issues,
  • Offers tips to effectively work with the media, and
  • Provides practical tools to help you and your organisation advocate on your issue.

This second edition of the Advocacy in Action toolkit, released January 2010, features more examples and case studies, a comprehensive guide to evaluation, and more tips on working with the media.
