Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan
The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) reflects Councils committment to improve the health and wellbeing of our residents and provide positive outcomes that will work towards reducing disadvantage and strengthen partnerships between Council, local health organisations and the community.
The MPHWP is based around the framework of the four environments and behaviours that are key components in addressing health and wellbeing issues. They are:
- Economic Environment
- Social Environment
- Natural Environment
- Built Environment
- Healthy Behaviours
Within each of these areas there is the goal, an explanation of how the environment or behaviour relates to health and wellbeing, our current practice and what our directions are for the plan.
Data and statistics have been sourced from various organisations including VicHealth, ABS 2011 Census, Department of Health and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The information was able to provide clear areas of focus for the development of the new MPHWP.
