Health and wellbeing

The way we live has an impact on our health. Whether we exercise enough, eat the right food, drink in moderation or smoke or use drugs can have an impact on our health and wellbeing. Public Health South has a variety of projects aimed at addressing these lifestyle factors.

  • Our Health Promotion Advisors work in partnership with District Licensing Agencies, local police, community groups and other organisations to develop projects and support community-led initiatives to minimise addiction and alcohol related harm in the community.
  • Through nutrition and physical activity, health promotion and advocacy in the Southern Region we aim to improve the health and wellbeing, reduce the rates of obesity and health inequities
