Draft Public Health Plan

Consultation has concluded

*this consultation has now closed*

Charles Sturt is supporting community health and wellbeing.

The South Australian Public Health Act 2011 commenced in 2012, introducing a new requirement for Councils to develop Public Health Plans. Its main aim is to promote and protect public health and reduce the incidence of preventable illness, injury and disability in South Australia

We have prepared a draft and now need your help to refine our very first Public Health Plan. There are a number of ways you can get involved.

You can:

Much of the work that Council does has direct influence on our community’s health and wellbeing. Council’s Community Plan and Corporate Plan contain many strategies and actions that will influence the health and wellbeing of our community. The draft Public Health Plan collates these strategies and actions, considers the priorities of the State Public Health Plan and identifies associated administrative actions specific to Charles Sturt.

This consultation will close on 11 March. For more information contact Barbara on 8408 1891.

    To assist with the preparation and future development of our public health plan, Councils have worked with the Public Health Information Unit of the Adelaide University to develop a local population health profile.

    The profile considers a range of demographic, social, economic and personal health indicators.

    The profile considers a range of demographic, social, economic and personal health indicators. Obesity, smoking, physical inactivity, premature mortality and mental health are some of the areas for consideration as we develop our public health plan over time. Partnerships with other agencies will play an important role in addressing these issues for the City going forward. As with our public health plan, this is data profile is a starting point from which to build up our knowledge and understanding of our community’s health and wellbeing.
