What if we actually did increase the number of Queenslanders who have a healthy weight?
Imagine lower rates of diabetes, cancer, stroke, dementia and osteo-arthritis. Improved mental health, social health and educational outcomes. A whole state eating healthier, moving more and feeling better. Have we ever planned for such an impact in our strategic thinking or future forecasting?
Should we ever dare to factor a positive outcome into our planning for services, budgets and strategy?
The answer is yes. And that’s what we’re doing.
