Mapping preventive health policies, strategies and initiatives across the WA Public Sector

26 July 2023

The Sustainable Health Review’s recommendations for prevention and public health call for a cross-sector, social determinants of health approach.

The Department of Health’s Chronic Disease Prevention Directorate (CDPD) has produced a report that maps policies, plans and projects being implemented by other WA government departments and agencies that will contribute to reducing preventable chronic disease and injury and promote health and wellbeing. This information has been compiled from a review of department and agency websites.

The report shows that there are substantial areas of shared interest between the WA Department of Health and other departments and agencies.

These existing intersections provide a strong foundation for maximising the impact of policies and programs through interagency engagement and collaboration.
