Local Health and Wellbeing partners (see below) have come together because we recognise the need to work together to maximise the opportunities for all residents to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. We understand that working together at a local level enables a systems approach to place-based prevention. To achieve this aim local place-based Health and Wellbeing Partnerships were formed in each shire to align our planning processes and work towards producing a single plan to capture prevention and health promotion activities across the shire from 2017-2021. Aligning with the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan, this document encompasses the, Integrated Health Promotion Plans and Primary Care Partnership prevention plan.
Reporting on these plans has also evolved, and since 2019 a combined catchment-based report of key activities and milestones has been the preferred style for DHHS Loddon. This year our reports are presented in a webpage format with links to case studies, videos and social media posts to showcase our work in an interactive format. Follow the links to each shire’s reporting portal below.
