Strategy and planning

SA Health’s mission is to lead and deliver a comprehensive and sustainable health system that aims to ensure longer, happier and healthier lives for all South Australians.

SA Health is focussed on service planning and delivery, policy, health protection and promotion, clinical education and research, whilst striving to keep people healthy through a focus on prevention, promotion and early intervention initiatives.

Our plans will be informed by the SA Health Planning Framework which involves co-designing and developing better integrated high quality and safe services, tailored to communities and targeted to risk factors and our priority population groups. We will also build capacity and capability with our health system planning partners to deliver more community based services, closer to people’s homes.
