The World Federation of Public Health Associations would like to congratulate our President Michael Moore on his newly received honour. On Australia Day, 26th of January 2017, Prof. Michael Moore became a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in recognition of his significant service to community health, particularly to social policy reform, and to the community of the Australian Capital Territory. The Order of Australia is an order of chivalry, established to recognize Australian citizens and other persons for achievement or meritorious service.
Prof. Moore said “these things are always also a recognition of those around who offer their support, encouragement and ideas. I have been fortunate for many decades to be surrounded by people working for a better world and fairer, healthier communities. It is part of the joy of working in public health”.
