ABOUT SIze Inclusive Health Australia 

    Size Inclusive Health Australia is a non-profit, member-based association that brings together the highest quality information, training and specialists in Australia for size inclusive care, including the Health at Every Size® (HAES®) approach.  

    Size Inclusive Health Australia aims to:

      1. Advance the welfare of people who experience weight-related prejudice, bias, stigma, and size discrimination in Australian health and wellbeing settings.
      2. To advance understanding of size-inclusive, weight-neutral, client-centred, and evidence-informed approaches in the health and fitness sectors in Australia.


      Our vision is for a just and compassionate community, where all bodies are respected and belong.


      We promote equitable access to evidence-based healthcare and life-enhancing practices for people of every size, through information, resources, and advocacy.  


      Respect – being accountable for our words and actions; regardless of setting or audience

      Advocacy – creating an active and vibrant network, committed to the cause; achieving change through a shared strategy

      Inclusion – listening and learning; understanding that diversity does not exist without inclusion

      Evidence-based – critiquing and using current evidence in all our work; contributing to ethical research through collaboration

      Community – having a shared vision; being connected and compassionate, proactive and kind

      Social Justice – focussing on equality, equity and participation; positively contributing to a safe, fair and just society


      Originally established in 2013 as the Association for Non-diet Approach Research Inc, Size Inclusive Health Australia was incorporated in 2016.  

      Since it was established, Size Inclusive Health Australia has seen substantial growth in membership and now has over 450 members. Our members include health and fitness professionals, researchers, academics and policy makers working from a Health at Every Size® approach.  We also welcome community members who are interested in helping promote and further the adoption of HAES® principles in Australia.
