Minister for Health and Wellbeing - Excellence in Public Health Awards

Each year, the Minister for Health and Wellbeing Excellence in Public Health Awards celebrate outstanding contributions to public health by local governments across South Australia.

There are two winning categories, one for regional councils and another for metropolitan councils.

The Awards showcase councils' essential and often unseen roles in supporting community health and wellbeing through public health action.

The winner in each category receives prize money of $3,000 to progress or improve public health in their local government area.

The panel will also honour ‘Highly Commended’ councils for their contributions.
