Local Government Planning Guide

In 2011, PHAIWA developed this resource for local governments: "Public Health Planning: A guide to developing a local government Public Health Plan"


In 2012, the WA Government  is expected to pass the Public Health Bill 2011. One of the requirements of this bill is that all local governments will be required to develop a Public Health Plan. In preparation for this, PHAIWA, in partnership with Stoneham and Associates, have developed a free guide to assist local governments to develop a Public Health Plan.

12 Advocacy Targets set for Overweight and Obesity
