Governance

The APHN has a complex structure that allows for both individuals and organisations to be involved in the organisation.  Only Ordinary Organisational Members have voting rights.  Council Members and representatives of Organisational Members must be Individual Members.  This ensures the commitment of those involved in the business of the APHN.

The APHN has a governing Council of 20 members.  Seven of these are appointed from sectors on a rotating basis, seven are elected and six are co-opted.  All members have a two-year term.  The first Annual General Meeting was held in Taiwan in 2001.
