Water Security, Health Lens Analysis Project

In early 2008 the Office for Water Security and SA Health commenced work on a Health Lens Analysis Project, looking at the health impacts associated with the use of alternative water supplies.

This project was the first health lens to be undertaken by SA Health and therefore adopted a strong 'learning by doing' approach.

A series of recommendations (PDF 286KB) and a final report (PDF 407KB) summarising the evidence gained through the project were taken up by the Office for Water Security and informed the development of South Australia’s water security plan, Water for Good.
