Health Promotion

 

Priorities and Plan

These principles were developed as an outcome of our health promotion strategic planning process and reflect the expectations and aspirations of members. The first five principles are based on direct input from members while the other seven principles are existing principles for health promotion developed by the Department of Health.

Building Socially Inclusive Rural Communities:

Building Socially Inclusive Rural Communities: A complete resource is a new evidence-informed resource, developed collaboratively by the Loddon Mallee Region Primary Care Partnerships (PCPs) and their members, which aims to build socially inclusive communities across the region and beyond.

The resource provides information and ideas for translating the evidence and principles of rural social inclusion into actions that people can understand and apply in their own rural community, sector or setting.  The informative package will facilitate the discussion of rural social inclusion throughout planning, implementation and evaluation processes and across a diverse professional audience.

The package includes information and personal stories from communities across central and northern Victoria that have successfully addressed social exclusion.
