WA Health Promotion Strategic Framework

The goal of the Health Promotion Strategic Framework (HPSF) is to lower the incidence of avoidable chronic disease and injury in WA by facilitating improvements in health behaviours and environments.

The HPSF focuses on the main lifestyle risk factors which contribute most to burden of disease in our State, including:

  • overweight and obesity
  • nutrition
  • physical activity
  • tobacco use and
  • harmful levels of drinking.

A section on injury prevention is also included.

The current Health Promotion Strategic Framework builds on the first two Frameworks (2007–2011 and 2012-16) and continues to emphasise the importance of addressing the contributing factors to ill-health, incorporating health messages across all Government policy, and working with key partners to achieve the goal of a healthier community.
