Public Health Information Session - Not-For-Profit Organisations
24 Oct
24 Oct


The Public Health Act 2016 commenced in July 2016 and is currently progressing through a staged process of implementation. The Act creates new obligations for Local Governments, including the requirement to prepare a Local Public Health Plan is part of Stage 5 of implementation, which will commence in 3-5 years. In the First Interim State Public Health Plan, released by the Department of Health in July 2017, the importance of partnership and collaboration with health organisations to assist Local Government in establishing and reaching public health goals for the community was emphasised. Many Local Governments have either initiated or developed a public health plans, and others are in preparation to commence the process.

WALGA would like to assist both Local Governments, and relevant health-based Not-For-Profit organisations, by inviting Not-For-Profits to attend an information session on Local Public Health Planning. The aim of the session is to:
  • Provide an overview of the Public Health Act 2016 and its impact on Local Governments
  • Explain Local Government Strategic Community Plans and its relationship to all of Local Government business
  • Outline the requirements for a Local Public Health Plan, and explain how not-for-profit organisations can become involved in partnering with and assisting Local Governments in achieving the objectives of their Plans, and
  • Present case studies and information to assist not-for-profits to both make contact with Local Governments, and design programs which are easily accessible for Local Governments to include in their Public Health Plans. 
This event is also available via webinar.
