Three ways we can create healthy change
1

A focus on places

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.

2

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.

Healthy and sustainable environments

The health of our environment impacts on the health of our population. To provide for the best possible health outcomes for Victorians, we are supporting healthy and sustainable environments and liveable, connected communities.
