Dates of existence

1984 -


Australian People for Health, Education and Development Abroad (APHEDA) was established in 1984 as the overseas aid agency of the Australian Council of Trade Unions in recognition of the union movement's responsibility to contribute to workers in other countries who are disadvantaged through poverty, lack of human rights and civil conflict. The organisation was co-founded by Helen McCue, APHEDA's first Executive Director and regional adviser in South Africa and the Middle East until early 1994. It supports training projects in many countries with the support of individual union members, trade unions and aid agencies such as the Australian government agency AusAid. It is also known as Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA.
