Healthy Tasmania Five Year Strategic Plan

Healthy Tasmania is a Tasmanian Government and community partnership that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of Tasmanians.

The Healthy Tasmania Five Year Strategic Plan 2016–2021 ended on 30 June 2021.

The Government has committed new funding for the next Healthy Tasmania Five Year Strategic Plan (2021-2026) which will be released by November this year. Further funding has also been committed for community grants through the Healthy Tasmania Fund.

Other key commitments for preventive health include community health and wellbeing networks, youth smoking prevention program, school lunch pilot and education programs.

Over the last five years Healthy Tasmania has established strong partnerships and collaboration across sectors to help Tasmanians live healthier lives. There are many inspiring success stories in local enterprise, social connections and community engagement. Local and community-based action is supporting Tasmanians to eat well, be more active, be smoke free and improve mental health and wellbeing.

Targeted consultation for next phase of Healthy Tasmania

Planning and consultation for the next phase of Healthy Tasmania are underway.

We have worked closely with and listened to communities over the last five years and this will help shape the next Plan. There is a large amount of evidence from research, surveys, evaluation, feedback and consultation from the first phase of Healthy Tasmania to inform the priorities, actions and outcomes for the next five years. Whilst significant progress has been made, further action is needed.

We invited key stakeholders to provide feedback on the proposed priorities, areas for action and outcomes, as well as governance models and ways to measure our progress. Consultations took place in July and August 2021, with feedback currently being analysed.

Further information about the next phase of Healthy Tasmania will be available soon.
