Health Promotion - Services

The Health Promotion team works in partnership with the community and other key organisations to enable people to take control of their health. While many Eastern Health services offer treatment and education for individual patients when they get sick, Health Promotion looks at how we can improve health and prevent illness on a community level using best practice frameworks and principles.
Our focus is not necessarily on particular diseases. Instead we aim to improve people’s health by focusing our work on the social, economic and environmental conditions that lead to good health.

The goal of the Health Promotion team is:
‘To enhance and improve the health of the community in the Eastern Region, Eastern Health staff and consumers through the provision of high quality health promotion action’.

The Health Promotion team is currently working on the 2017-2021 Integrated Health Promotion Plan, which will outline our priorities for the next four years. Check back in the coming months for updates from the team.
