Health Promotion

Bendigo Health strives to not only address the health of our patients, but also to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.

We understand that health is not simply an outcome of individual behaviour choices. The places where we live, learn, work and play have a huge impact on our health.

We work to improve health outcomes by enabling and empowering individuals and communities to increase control over their own health.

What we do

Our priority is providing an environment that promotes healthy, active living for our community. This means environments that are smoke free, support healthy eating and oral health, and physical activity.


We do not do this alone. Partnerships are an important aspect of our work. Not only do we work with internal Bendigo Health departments but also with external community organisations including:

  • Local community organisations
  • Local and state government
  • Health services
  • Early childhood and education settings
