The Campaign for Australian Aid is a community of people determined to build a fair, sustainable, and peaceful world
We are a community of Australian aid and development organisations, churches, community groups, businesses and citizens who speak out for a world where all people, regardless of gender, race, or place of birth, can live a free, happy and healthy life. We support a global approach to action on poverty, inequality, and climate change and for an Australia that is a compassionate global citizen helping to create a fair, sustainable, and peaceful world.
Poverty (Social Justice): We are for a fair go for everyone regardless of place of birth, standing up for a world free from poverty. That’s why Australia should meet its global commitment of Australian aid of 0.7% of GNI.
Inequality (Economic Fairness): We are for economic and gender equality and for ensuring global corporates pay their fair share of tax and pay working people fair wages.
Climate Change (Environmental Sustainability): We are for clean air, water and land and for action against big polluters who are causing climate change and putting people, particularly people living in the poorest parts of the world, at risk.
Travel Doctor-TMVC: Supporting your travelling workforce to have a safe and healthy journey.
Your workforce is your greatest asset and keeping employees happy and healthy is key to productivity. In today’s global economy, business people are travelling further and at shorter notice to more isolated areas than ever before. Consequently, the threat posed by illness and injury to successful business outcomes has intensified.
Each year Australian businesses absorb over $7 Billion in indirect costs associated with absenteeism due to poor health. Failure to properly manage the health risks of travelling employees can be costly. Travel Doctor-TMVC lives and breathes travel medicine advice and will provide a comprehensive plan for how your employees can keep healthy and safe while aboard. This may include pre-deployment medicals, travel management of chronic disease, complex conditions, vaccination requirements, medical kits and much more.
