TheBrimbankAtlas of Health and Education
Physical Activity, Sport and Health in the City ofBrimbank
A summary of the findings and their implications can be found in theBrimbankCollaboration: A Collaborative Approach to Lifting Health and Education Outcomes
These reports were designed to enable Victoria University andBrimbankcommunity leaders andorganisationsto plan and develop integrated policies, services and strategies to lift health and education outcomes across theBrimbankcommunity now and in the future.
Considering the social determinants of health for this assessment you will use this data to inform the development of a health promotion project plan to address a priority health issue in the City ofBrimbank. You can target a specific population group inBrimbankor develop a project that targets the broader population.
Your project plan should align with the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2015-2019. You should consider focusing on the priority of ‘Healthier Eating and Active Living’ in the Plan but recognize that there are important relationships between all priorities. Please see the Unit Coordinator to discuss if you are uncertain.
Your project plan should also consider the VicHealth Action Agenda for Health Promotion.
