The Queensland Public Health Forum is a formal collaborative working arrangement between a number of agencies that have an interest in public health in Queensland. Membership includes representatives from State, Commonwealth and local government, other State government agencies, non-government organisations, professional associations, the university sector, primary health care and Indigenous health.
The Queensland Public Health Forum would like to thank Queensland Health, one of the Forum's member organisations, for hosting this site.
The brochure provides more information on the Queensland Public Health Forum.
QPHF currently has four key public health priorities which are the focus of our resource investment. Each key priority is defined and actioned by a Strategic Statement and supported by an Implementation Working Group.
Eat Well Queensland: Smart Eating for a Healthier State is the first Queensland whole of population strategy to address food and nutrition issues.
Active Living acknowledges that to adequately address physical inactivity, interventions need to target both the individual and the built and natural environments.
Skin Cancer Prevention acknowledges that Queensland has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world and that a broad range of strategies is required to address this area.
A Climate Change and its Effects on Health Working Group has now been formed and consists of QPHF members and other individuals from non-member organisations with relevant expertise and experience in the area of climate change. This group represents an innovative approach to identifying and prioritising the issues that will address the impact of climate change and its effect on health in Queensland.
