First Interim State Public Health Plan

Closes 31 Dec 2017

Opened 24 Jul 2017

Overview

Professor Tarun Weeramanthri, the Chief Health Officer of the Western Australian Department of Health is pleased to release the First Interim State Public Health Plan for the first stage of consultation. 

The First Interim State Public Health Plan includes:

  • a report on the health status of Western Australians and 
  • the public health objectives and policy priorities for 2017 - 2021

Although the State Public Health Plan is not required to be formally published until Part 5 of the Public Health Act 2016 is enacted in approximately 4 years time, the First Interim State Public Health Plan has been developed by the Chief Health Officer and the Public Health Division of the WA Department of Health, to support organisations who seek to be consistent with the public health objectives and policy priorities of the Department.

Why We Are Consulting

The Chief Health Officer would like to engage with interested stakeholders across WA to inform the development of the State Public Health Plan which will be released once Part 5 of the Public Health Act 2016 is enacted.

This online consultation is the first stage of the process and is targeted specifically at local government. The second stage of consultation will target State Governments, non-government organisations and the wider community. However, any interested person can complete this survey at any time.  

The Chief Health Officer is seeking feedback on the First Interim State Public Health Plan, as well as ideas on how the WA Department of Health can work with our many partners into the future.

The WA Department of Health appreciates you taking the time to review the First Interim State Public Health Plan and providing your feedback in the following survey. The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. You have the option to save your progress and return to the consultation at any point. 

This consultation will close on the 1st December 2017. Otherwise, please feel free to submit any feedback on the Public Health Act and/or the public health planning process via email to publichealthact@health.wa.gov.au

After the consultation period closes, the Department of Health will consider the submissions received and provide feedback on the outcome of this consultation to stakeholders.
