Better Living Better Health Draft Regional Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2020 – 2025

The vision of the State Public Health Plan (2019 – 2024) is for communities that are friendly, safe and sustainable with well-designed places that support physical and mental health and wellbeing. This includes being able to walk or cycle to local services, having easily accessible public transport to larger centres, being able to make nutritious food choices and enjoy being active in parks and other recreational facilities. The vision also sees South Australia’s rich diversity celebrated, community activities accessible to everyone and residents participating and having a say in community life.

Better Living Better Health Draft Regional Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2020 – 2025 is the regional public health and wellbeing plan for the Eastern Health Authority (EHA) constituent councils of Burnside, Campbelltown, Prospect, Norwood Payneham & St Peters, and Walkerville.

This Plan acknowledges that public health is a key concern for all constituent councils and that each Council addresses public health issues across their business. The detail of individual Council actions is not addressed in this Plan. Instead, it focuses on regional activities that require collaboration between the councils and community partners, builds on regional strengths and addresses regional challenges. It also considers the vision of the State Public Health Plan 2019-2024, and it addresses the State’s four strategic priorities:

Promote: Build stronger communities and healthier environments

Protect: Protect against public and environmental health risks and respond to climate change

Prevent: Prevent chronic disease, communicable disease and injury

Progress: Strengthen the systems that support public health and wellbeing.
