Health Promotion

Our aim is to work with communities to co-create healthy and equitable futures. 

At Star Health we recognise that everyone’s health is created by the conditions in which they are born, grow, live, work and age.  

Our health promotion projects aim to give everyone the best chance of a healthy life by supporting people to gain the skills and resources they need to be healthy, making the environments in which we spend our time safe and supportive of good health, and working with the community to enable people to take action on the things that are important to them. 

Our Health Promotion Team works across Stonnington and Port Phillip. We work in partnership with the community, local government, schools, early childhood services, public housing and organisations to improve health and wellbeing of population groups experiencing health inequities. 

 

Our Strategic Prevention Plan outlines our health focus areas: 

  • Healthy eating  
  • Active living 
  • Improving mental health  
  • Preventing violence and injury
  • Tackling climate change and its impact on health  

Our plan is aligned to the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-23 

We report our progress and achievements: Star Health-Health Promotion Report 2017- 2021
