VicHealth's DAP is one of a number of strategies the organisation has implemented to prioritise the health of Victorians with a disability.
VicHealth has a long history of fostering inclusion and engagement across Victorian communities and this plan continues to build on our earlier achievements.
Many of the barriers to better health experienced by Victorians with a disability are not due to physical or intellectual limitations, but are instead due to the attitudes, practices and structures in society that are, in fact, disabling. Changes to these societal factors will prevent the disadvantage that results in unequal health outcomes. For VicHealth, this starts with our own practice.
