State of South Australia marked 10 years of HiAP practice in 2017. Key drivers for such long history of HiAP have been following: central government directive and mandate; social determinants of health – as entry point; public policy focus – not health priority; leveraging existing government decision making structures; collaboration and partnership; co design process and evidence.
Vision: Public policy creates the social, economic and environmental conditions to promote population health, well-being and equity.
Aim: Improve the health and well-being of South Australians by strengthening cross-government action on the social determinants of health through a Health in All Policies approach.
