My health, Queensland’s future: Advancing health 2026

My health, Queensland's future: Advancing health 2026 (Advancing health 2026) (PDF, 1.3MB) articulates a 10-year vision and strategy for Queensland’s health system.

Queensland already has a health system that performs well and provides high-quality services. However, like health systems everywhere, it is facing significant challenges. These include an ageing population, increases in the incidence of chronic diseases, and the need for smarter healthcare delivery. Advancing Health 2026 has been produced to outline aspirations for how the entire Queensland health system can support Queenslanders to maintain and improve health and wellbeing into the future.

The vision

By 2026 Queenslanders will be among the healthiest people in the world.

The directions

  1. Promoting wellbeing—Improving the health of Queenslanders, through concerted action to promote healthy behaviours, prevent illness and injury and address the social determinants of health.
  2. Delivering healthcare—The core business of the health system and improving equitable access to quality and safe healthcare in its different forms and settings.
  3. Connecting healthcare—Making the health system work better for consumers, their families and communities by tackling the funding, policy and delivery barriers. 
  4. Pursuing innovation—Developing and capitalising on evidence and models that work, promoting research and translating it into better practice and care.
