Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plans (MPHWPs) are a legislative requirement of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, and Councils are required to prepare an MPHWP within 12 months after each local election.
Moreland Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) 2013-17
The vision for Moreland’s 2013-17 MPHWP is 'people’s health and wellbeing is at the centre of all planning and decision making'.
The MPHWP 2013-17 outlines:
- Data about the health status and social determinants (wellbeing) of the community;
- The priority health issues of most concern, including mental health, diabetes and cardiovascular disease; and
- Ways to improve the communities health and wellbeing.
Moreland Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) 2017-21.
Council endorsed a 14 September 2016 Council Report (PDF 1Mb) that outlines the deliverables of the MPHWP from October 2016 through to November 2017.
As a result of this endorsement, the planning for the MPHWP has commenced. The MPHWP will be developed to align with the Council Plan 2017-2021, it will reflect community priorities identified in the Moreland Community Vision, and be underpinned by the Moreland Human Rights Policy 2016-2020.
This process will review the implementation of the previous MPHWP, build on its strengths and work with partners to define the health and wellbeing priorities of the Moreland community for the next 4 years.
The MPHWP 2017-21 will identify key priorities, actions and measures for Council and its partners to improve public health and community wellbeing.
