ASHA Clinical Author

ASHA runs a number of health awareness and communication campaigns and programs both in Australia and through the South Asian region. ASHA Clinical Authors are health professionals or students with the ability to communicate often complex health-related concepts to a lay audience.

ASHA distributes these articles through a variety of print magazines and hosts them online ensuring that all work written for ASHA reaches an audience of thousands. ASHA Clinical Authors can write a single article or many, as frequently as fits in with their schedule. All submitted work is rigorously proofread by our project leaders for health content and grammar accuracy.
