About Us

Empowering Australians to protect their health from day-to-day fluctuations and extreme events from airborne hazards.


AirHealth is Australia’s leading air quality and health information service founded by Australian scientists, at the forefront of pollen, air quality and health research. AirHealth brings together the teams behind Melbourne Pollen and AirRater to create a unified, holistic service for individuals, government and industry.

Using comprehensive live data streams, and cutting-edge science and technology, we offer user-friendly, interactive smart phone apps and a growing range of information services for industry and governments. In partnership with leading air quality scientists, research institutions and government agencies, AirHealth provides Australians with timely and accurate information about changes in air quality that can affect their health.

Our Team

AirHealth was founded by a team of scientists from the University of Tasmania and the University of Melbourne. After operating the AirRater and Melbourne Pollen apps separately for several years, the founders came together to forge a common purpose and vision: to support healthier, longer lives through accessible, science-backed air quality and health information.

With expertise spanning air quality modeling, pollen forecasting, fire ecology, data science, epidemiology, education, clinical medicine and public health, the AirHealth team is uniquely placed to curate and communicate the best available air quality information to support health.

Our Purpose

Everyone needs to know about their air.

Each day, we take over 10,000 breaths. The quality of that air has profound impacts on our health.

Our purpose is to provide world leading air health information for living well.

From heart disease to diabetes, lung conditions and poorer birth outcomes, air quality can affect us over our whole life course.

With better information, we can take the action we need to protect our health, and live longer, healthier lives.

Founded by scientists with a passion for improving the health of the community, AirHealth exists to fulfill this core purpose: to support longer, healthier lives through accessible, high quality air information, combined with evidence-based strategies to protect health.
