We know that prevention is better than a cure, so we are working hard to place prevention at the centre of efforts to deliver lasting improvements to the health and wellbeing of Victorians. By aligning our efforts across government, across organisations, and across communities, we can deliver real improvements to the lives of Victorians.
Creating healthy places where we spend our time is at the heart of healthy change. By working collectively across our communities, and across our schools, workplaces and more, we will deliver positive change for all.
Recognising the unique strengths, vulnerabilities and complexities of people and communities allows for a flexible, integrated and real-world response with people and populations at the centre. By placing people at the centre we can create better health and wellbeing for all.
