Better Living Better Health

Better Living Better Health is the inaugural Public Health and Wellbeing Plan for the Eastern Health Authority Constituent Councils – the Cities of Burnside, Campbelltown, Norwood Payneham & St Peters, Prospect and the Town of Walkerville. 

Better Living Better Health is about addressing the many social, economic and environmental factors which influence how happy and healthy we are as individuals and as a community. 

The strategies identified in the Plan build on the extensive work already being done by the constituent Councils which help to improve health and wellbeing, as well as building on the strong working relationships which exist between stakeholders across different sectors.
