The Minister for Health and Wellbeing – Excellence in Public Health Awards celebrate local council initiatives across South Australia which have resulted in outstanding contributions to public health in local communities.
The Awards showcase stories of success in delivering public health benefits in local areas, and councils’ essential, often unseen, roles in supporting community health and wellbeing.
The winners will represent exemplary local and regional public health action which can raise the practice bar across local government, and promote greater awareness of the importance of public health for all South Australians.
The awards are open to all local councils across South Australia and there are two award categories, ‘metropolitan’ and ‘regional’ (based on LGA classification)
