State Public Health Plan

The State Public Health Plan (PDF 2656KB) has been developed under the South Australian Public Health Act 2011.

It identifies a clear vision: South Australia a Better Place to Live and key priorities for action:

  • stronger and healthier communities and neighbourhoods for all generations
  • increasing opportunities for healthy living, healthy eating and being active
  • preparing for climate change
  • sustaining and improving public and environmental health protection
  • building and supporting a system for public health planning (for example data sets, indicator development, evaluation frameworks)

The State Public Health Plan will be used across State Government and by Local Councils to take action to protect and improve the health of South Australians over the next 5 years.

Data Sources for Public Health Planning

The Data Sources for Public Health Planning (PDF 1584KB) scopes the range of possible data sources which could be used to assist in public health planning at the State level and by Local Councils.  It is intended to be a starting point and it is expected to be further refined and developed over the course of the first 5 year planning cycle.
