Chronic disease prevention is a huge challenge across North Queensland. Not one agency or organisation can tackle this problem alone. However, by each taking a ‘piece of the puzzle’, we may be able to make a difference, with locally driven, locally appropriate approaches for our North Queensland communities.
Local government makes a significant contribution to building healthy communities.
The following short videos have been developed by the Queensland University of Technology in relation to Local Governments’ role in chronic disease prevention. Designed with the NQPHN region in mind, they provide an educational resource for both experienced workers and those new to working in local government.
Key themes include:
- the health of North Queensland communities
- the impact of health on the broader community
- creating healthy communities – people, place, and programs
- steps to creating a local action plan.
