Review: Primary Victorian health promotion organisation with a mandate to develop community health promotion campaigns, to conduct research, and to provide evidence-based advice to government to help shape policies and to prioritise funding which promote population good health and the prevention of chronic disease. Preventing tobacco use, preventing harm from alcohol and improving mental health and wellbeing are three of the current Strategic Imperatives. An excellent site for local and state government professionals, and health science or health promotion tertiary students. The site provides access to all facets of current public health campaigns and the statistical evidence behind the campaigns. Use the internal search tool to identify specific information. Some components of the site require registration and login.
