Five South Australian organisations – AHPA SA, PHAA SA, SACOSS, Anti-Poverty Network SA and the People’s Health Movement organised the following
A vision statement for a healthy, flourishing South Australian Community – available here
This advocated for three key initiatives:

  1. Enable state-level leadership with a mandate for prevention, health promotion and wellbeing
  2. Establish a Connected Health for All Strategy
  3. Establish and evaluate two non-government comprehensive primary health care centres (CPHCCs) in South Australia which build community capacity through health promotion, partnerships and development.

AHPA SA and PHAA SA Branch Presidents appeared on the Channel nine news (see the video here) and in the South Australian paper, the Advertiser (here).

These directions (and others) were reinforced through a joint submission on the review of the SA Public Health Plan - here

This work was informed by a successful session on advocacy last year with six experienced advocates presenting advice to a large audience on how to advocate successfully.

There an election forum Beyond Hospitals: who will keep our community healthy held on March 1 2018.

A selection of graphics were prepared – see below for some examples.



#Healthy SA created a twitter storm on the night!

The Liberal Party were successful and their platform includes the establishment of “Wellbeing SA” as a Prevention, Health Promotion and Primary Health Care agency, within SA Health. AHPA SA will be contributing to shaping this new structure.
