Campaspe Shire’s municipal heath and wellbeing plan for 2014-15 will see a calendar of events and other measures to promote health and wellbeing.

They include a youth health promotion website and an education workshop on the impacts of alcohol and drugs for sports clubs.

The 2013-17 municipal public health and wellbeing plan is the blueprint for how council works with other levels of government and community agencies to ensure a holistic approach to addressing the health and wellbeing needs of all residents.

The action plan maps out more than 70 activities to be delivered in 2014-15 to address the underlying causes of chronic illness in the following eight key priority areas:

reducing the impact of alcohol and other drugs;

climate change adaptation and mitigation;

promoting oral health;

reducing violence against women and children;

encouraging healthy eating;

increasing physical activity;

reducing tobacco use; and

promoting mental health.

The action plan will be updated annually, with the community and council updated on progress of activities.
