Welcome to the Australasian Human Development Association

The Australasian Human Development Association (AHDA) is a multidisciplinary, non-profit association formed in the early 1980s. The goals of the Association are to foster and promote research on human development at all stages of the lifespan, including prenatal development, infancy and childhood, adolescence and adulthood. The association promotes the application of research findings to inform professional practice in various disciplines, as well as to inform social policy concerned with individual development, families and communities.
