Regional Public Health Plan 2015-2020
Public health in the 21st century has a lot to do with the way our community is organised and how our society shares its benefits and advantages. It’s about how we protect ourselves and how we rise to the challenges and risks that threaten our communities, whether natural disasters, widespread diseases, or social or economic shock that strain the very fabrics of our communities. It reflects how resilient we are, how we recover from hardships and breakdowns, and how we can together rebuild and restore our sense of wellbeing and community. Therefore, public health is about all of us-preventing the causes that make us sick and build on those things that protect us and improve our health and wellbeing.
