Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA
The QNU is an active supporter of Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA, which is the humanitarian arm of the Australian trade union movement.
Australian People for Health, Education and Development Abroad (APHEDA) was created in 1984 as the overseas aid agency of the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) in recognition of the union movement's responsibility to contribute directly to countries and regions of the world affected by injustices and human rights issues.
The broad aim of Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA is to support men and women workers who are disadvantaged through poverty, a lack of workplace or human rights, or civil conflict and war.
Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA has developed an international program to build self-reliance through support for educational and training projects for many workers and their organisations in communities in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East, Southern Africa and the Caribbean.
Providing union organising and HIV training for “beer promotion” women in Cambodia and training and supporting East Timorese nurses are just some of the health specific projects Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA currently supports.
Support for Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA projects comes from many individual union members throughout Australia as well as their unions.There are a number of ways that QNU members as individuals can get active in support of worker’s rights in developing countries through Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA.
