Fair Foundations

Fair Foundations: The VicHealth framework for health equity is a planning tool for health promotion policy and practice. It has been used by local government, Primary Care Partnerships and international organisations to look at the social determinants of health inequities and what can be done to address them.


Elevate is a three-year initiative (2015–2018) that seeks to promote health equity by enabling innovative thinking and the design of new solutions at community, inter-organisation, and population levels. Our approach draws on learnings from successful incubator, accelerator and innovation lab programs from across the world, with a firm focus on collaboration and networking as ways to transform individual ideas, elevating them into action.

VicHealth Community Challenge

Following our submission to the Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry in 2015, we launched the VicHealth Community Challenge in the Latrobe Valley and invited the community to deliver ideas on how to generate more jobs. Four ideas were shortlisted and Latrobe Valley community members were invited to participate in an intensive business planning support program.
