We began as a simple idea for a health promotion agency.
Over many months people shared their thoughts and this helped shape legislation to create Health and Wellbeing Queensland.
Health and Wellbeing Queensland was established in July 2019 to improve the health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders and reduce health inequities. We work in partnership with others to reduce risk factors that lead to chronic diseases. We have been given a mandate to develop a new way of working that requires innovation, partnerships and an element of risk-taking that government is not well placed to deliver.
While we are accountable to the government, and the broader community, we are an independent organisation that will work relentlessly to achieve outcomes that benefit the whole of Queensland.
