The network submitted this letter to PHAA as part of the consultation undertaken by PHAA on the refresh of their 2017 Strategic Plan. We look forward to contributing further, and hope to see an increased focus on providing leadership and supporting self-employed workers as an important and growing segment of the public health workforce.
