Better Health Communication

COVID-19 has demonstrated that clear and culturally appropriate health communication remains a public health challenge, particularly in Melbourne’s west. Developing and delivering clear, concise, timely and consistent health messaging to all communities can help to mitigate greater health inequities. HealthWest sees there is an opportunity for a coordinated regional approach to health communications across Melbourne’s west, which prioritises good health literacy practice and systematic engagement of community throughout.

We are considering planning work in this space, starting with gaining a better understanding of how health communications are developed and communicated throughout Melbourne’s west, and who is involved.
