Our Regional Public Health Plan helps us promote health and wellbeing in rural areas. It's important in helping us to prevent disease and protect public health.
Many of these activities are taken directly from, or refer to, Council’s existing suite of strategic plans. The Regional Public Health Plan has been developed to align with health and wellbeing objectives set out in the Community Plan 2013 - 2027.
Council’s Regional Public Health Plan was developed in reference to the inaugural State Public Health Plan (SPHP), South Australia: A better place to live, and specifically its 4 strategic priorities:
- stronger and healthier communities and neighbourhoods for all generations
- increasing opportunities for healthy living, healthy eating and being active
- preparing for climate change
- sustaining and improving public and environmental health protection
The City of Charles Sturt’s Regional Health Plan 2014-2019 is a legislative requirement of the South Australian Public Health Act 2011.
