What is Healthy Tasmania?
Healthy Tasmania is the Government's plan for preventive health in Tasmania. The Plan brings together communities, services and all levels of government to work in partnership for improved health and wellbeing.
The Healthy Tasmania Five-Year Strategic Plan 2022–2026 builds on the evidence and lessons from the previous plan and what we heard from our community consultation.
Healthy Tasmania's vision is for all Tasmanians to have the opportunity to live healthy, active lives in communities that support connections to people, place and culture.
To achieve our vision, our actions will focus on supporting Tasmanians to be more connected in their communities, have positive mental health and wellbeing, limit harmful alcohol use, be smoke free, eat well, and live more active lives.
With a focus on priority populations and health literacy, we will make sure no person is left behind.
Climate change and health is also a focus area of the Plan, acknowledging the impacts of climate change on health and wellbeing, and ensuring our strategies will positively contribute to the climate change goals of this Government.
The Government has committed $8 million over four years for the Fund. The new Healthy Tasmania Fund launched September 2022.
Measuring our progress is important. A Research and Evaluation Framework has been developed to measure Healthy Tasmania's progress and help us identify areas where additional attention and action may be needed.
