Embedded in local communities, community health services have a unique understanding of the people they serve, informing their ability to develop localised responses to social and health issues.
This sector is unique in Australia dating back to the establishment of community health in the late 1970s, and provides an incredibly valuable community platform, however, it is one that has not received significant attention.
Opportunities to leverage the capacity and skilled workforce of community health for the benefit of the entire Victorian health system have not been taken, and the platform is gradually being weakened by enforced competition and funding cuts.
In the lead up to the Victorian election, the Victorian Healthcare Association, together with the state's 29 community health services, is calling on the next government to better leverage and support community health services to meet the needs of our clients and communities.
We hope you will support us as we work to ensure that community health services can continue to not only meet the needs of our growing communities but play an even greater role in supporting our broader health system.
Make your voice heard, stand with community health, speak to your local MP. Please take the pledge now tinyurl.com/y7ocgrfm
