Our Work

The Council of Ambulance Authorities (CAA) is the peak body representing ambulance services in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

Our work in the pre-hospital sector seeks to build on the strengths of ambulance services, address their challenges and promote the unique role they play in the health and wellbeing of all communities to governments, agencies and the public. 

Ambulance service representatives on three committees, eight working groups and five forums contribute to CAA’s focus on evidence-based initiatives and projects designed to keep ambulance services at the forefront of paramedicine.
