A new era for Health Stream

Health Stream is a quarterly public health bulletin which provides information and analysis for water and health professionals. It provides an excellent overview of water-related health incidents, and reports on recent research in water quality and public health.

Health Stream has been published since 1996. It was initiated by the Co-operative Research Centre for Water Quality and Treatment (CRCWQT) and continued in Water Quality Research Australia (WQRA) from 2008-2013. WaterRA recognises the valuable contribution it makes to the water industry globally, and is committed to continuing its production.

Members (who are logged in) can access all issues of Health Stream on the WaterRA website here.

Health Stream is produced by Dr Martha Sinclair, senior research fellow at Monash University. Working with Dr Sinclair on Health Stream is Assistant Editor Ms Pam Hayes.

Annual individual subscription is $55 (for Australian subscribers - inclusive of GST).

Overseas subscription is $50.

For this fee subscribers receive four issues per year and access to all previous issues.
