The creation of a Wellbeing SA agency is referred to in the State Government’s policy platforms: Better Prevention for a Healthy South Australia and Targeted Health Prevention as the primary mechanism to deliver on commitments for action on prevention.
The policy platforms define the agency as:
- a prevention, health promotion and primary health care agency, located within SA Health (but separate to hospitals)
- an agency that will (but not limited to) advocate for and purchase services for health promotion and hospital avoidance, focus on avoiding hospital admissions and broker collaborations to jointly deliver better prevention, sub-acute and chronic disease management services
