About DAA Partnerships

By establishing partnerships, DAA can increase capacity to strengthen our influence in building healthier communities through nutrition. DAA’s vision is to be the leading voice in nutrition and dietetics, particularly around important issues that impact the health of Australians. These issues include obesity, mental health, National Disability Insurance Scheme and a new National Nutrition Policy. DAA  advocates across the nutrition spectrum, working with all stakeholders including government, food industry, public health representatives, media and others.

DAA’s partnerships are managed in accordance with the Association’s Partnership Policy. Other related policies of interest are the Policy for Acceptance and Dissemination of Advertising (including trade exhibitions) and DAA’s Endorsement Policy.

The principles underpinning Partnership management at DAA are:

  • alignment with DAA Strategic Plan
  • alignment of organisational objectives, brand values and image
  • appropriate partnership benefits
  • value for money
  • transparency
  • ethical behaviour and fair dealing
  • appropriate activity and association

DAA will not consider partnerships with organisations within or related to food manufacturing and food industry associations or alcohol companies.

All Partnerships support our DAA mission:
