Draft WA Health Promotion Strategic Framework 2022-2026 Public Consultation

Closes 4 Feb 2022

Opened 7 Dec 2021

Overview

You are invited to review and provide feedback on the Draft WA Health Promotion Strategic Framework 2022–2026 (HPSF). The HPSF sets out a plan for reducing the prevalence of chronic disease and injury over the next five years. It builds on the achievements of the previous versions (2007-11, 2012–16 and 2017-21) and takes into account new evidence, policy changes, and relevant state, national and international developments.

The HPSF focuses on the main lifestyle risk factors which contribute most to the burden of chronic disease – smoking, overweight and obesity (including poor nutrition and insufficient physical activity), and harmful levels of alcohol use. It also includes a section on preventing injury and promoting safer communities. It outlines priorities and a framework for action to improve the health of Western Australians.

Although the HPSF outlines WA Health’s strategic direction and priorities, influencing the wider determinants of health to achieve a healthier WA will require the involvement of many partners. It is anticipated that the WA HPSF will be useful for agencies and organisations across a diverse range of sectors with a shared interest in promoting better health in WA.

Why we are consulting

To obtain feedback on the HPSF to further strengthen the document and ensure it is a robust policy framework that can be used by WA Health, its partners and stakeholders.
