Every Queenslander has the right to good health.

Our approach to population

We will listen to the voices of people across the many diverse communities of Queensland.

We recognise and celebrate diversity and we are committed to using our unique knowledge, skills and behaviours to embrace cultural differences and needs.

Our population approach focuses on creating environments that support healthier options at all stages of life and for priority populations.

Working with community

We believe the best outcomes are achieved when we listen to the needs of communities and work with them to build the capacity of their community leaders and influencers to develop, expand and lead their own health and wellbeing efforts.

We’re rolling out a phased approach to work intensively with a small number of communities across the state, and developing strategies, resources and tools to enable every community in Queensland to implement simple and effective changes to create healthier environments.
