Healthy Together Victoria
Victorians are being urged to make small steps towards better health. The state government has recently launched a new “Healthy Together Victoria’ campaign which aims to improve people’s health where they live, learn, work and play. People should start with small achievable changes, such as adding a few extra veggies to their meals, or cutting down on the amount of processed food they eat, or getting outdoors and exercising on the weekend.
Healthy Together Victoria focuses on addressing the underlying causes of poor health in children’s settings, workplaces and communities to strengthen Victoria’s prevention system. The focus is on encouraging healthy eating and physical activity, and reducing smoking and harmful alcohol use.
The initiative is jointly funded by the State Government of Victoria and the Australian Government through the National Partnership Agreement on Preventive Health (NPAPH).
- A focus on children
- A focus on workplaces
As children and young people develop the knowledge, skills and behaviour for lifelong health and wellbeing, preventive efforts focused in the early years of life are likely to be effective and long-lasting.
The benefits of healthy workplaces reach far beyond individual workers, influencing the health of families and communities. Behind every successful business is the hard working loyal employees who work within it. A healthy workplace also reduces sick leave and staff turnover and increases productivity and participation. One of the best ways for improving employee job satisfaction is a Corporate Health and Fitness Programs that aim to increase each staff members quality of life.
Through the National Partnership Agreement on Preventive Health (NPAPH), the Australian Government is delivering national initiatives that complement the work underway in Victoria. These are underpinned by a joint statement by the Australian Government and peak employer representatives and unions demonstrating their commitment to improving the health of the population through workplaces. There is also a Healthy Workers website which has the latest tools, resources and guidance to support employers develop health promoting workplaces and an awards program.
