  • Health Promotion Charity

    A health promotion charity (HPC) is a charity whose principal activity is promoting the prevention or control of human diseases.

    Who determines HPC status?

    The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is responsible for determining HPC status.

    The ACNC registers organisations as charities, including particular types of charities such as HPCs.

    We accept that an organisation is an HPC if it is registered by the ACNC as an HPC.
