2023 InfographicInvesting in health promotion is a smart strategy. It keeps people out of hospital, reduces the burden on overstretched health services and allows people to live healthier, more productive lives. Health promotion and illness prevention saves lives, money and deliver the best public return on investment in health. Every dollar invested in health promotion and prevention goes on to save $14. In the lead-up to the Federal Budget 2023, AHPA calls on the Australian Government to get serious about promoting health and to commit at least 5% of the health budget to Health Promotion and Illness Prevention, in line with the National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2023.

As part of this campaign, AHPA developed an updated infographic. Download the full version here. AHPA can provide members with the individual tiles contained in the infographic for use in their work. Tiles are available in JPEG or PDF formats and include: health promotion, health equity, smoking, overweight and obesity, alcohol use, climate change, and healthy built environments.
