This policy states VicHealth’s position on the responding to and provision of offers of gifts, benefits and hospitality.

The Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality policy is intended to support VicHealth and individuals to avoid conflicts of interest and maintain high levels of integrity and public trust.

VicHealth recognises the importance and the legitimate business reasons that workplace participants attend industry and stakeholder events and/or functions to present, represent, contribute to and/or develop a greater understanding of health promotion issues, trends and strategies.

VicHealth has issued this policy as well as this accompanying register to support behaviour consistent with the Code of conduct for Victorian public sector employees; Code of Conduct for Directors of Victorian Public Entities and the Victorian Public Sector Commission’s Gift, Benefits and Hospitality Framework.
