Northern Queensland Primary Health Network (NQPHN) works to improve people’s health and wellbeing throughout their lifespan, and focus on addressing both health and social determinants which lead to poor health outcomes.

NQPHN works closely with local communities in a diverse and sparse geographic region to identify unique health needs and coordinate service providers to collaborate and identify suitable solutions.

The key population health priorities for NQPHN include:

  • maternal and child health
  • chronic disease management and prevention
  • sexual health
  • healthy ageing
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
  • multicultural health.

Objectives of population health priorities are to:

  • address the needs of North Queensland communities to lower the number of preventable hospitalisations for people with chronic and vaccine preventable diseases
  • provide residents with quality care by supporting health care providers to address factors impacting population health
  • generate longer-term improvements to health outcomes for all population groups in the NQPHN region.
