Policy to action

Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-2023

The Victorian public health and wellbeing plan 2019–2023 (the plan) sets the direction for action across State and local governments, the health and wellbeing sector and the community at large to achieve sustained improvements in the health and wellbeing of all Victorians.

The plan identifies ten priorities, continuing the priorities of the previous plan with the introduction of two global threats to health and wellbeing: tackling climate change and its impact on health and decreasing the risk of drug resistant infections in the community.

In addition to setting a broad range of priorities the plan is placing increased attention on four focus areas for the next four years. These focus areas have been identified to drive targeted, collective and coordinated action in areas we know we can make the greatest gains. Implementation guidance has been developed to support partners to act.
