This evidence-based health promotion resource provides information and guidance on action to improve the health of Australians with a disability. It brings together the findings of a scientific literature review with stories of promising health promotion practice from across Australia and internationally.

Designed for people who work across the disability sector, Enabling Health is significant because while we know that the overall health of people with a disability is much worse than that of the general population; people with a disability have not been prioritised in the same way as other population groups experiencing inequity.

The following Easy English version was prepared by Scope’s Communication Resource Centre for VicHealth and has been tested for its appropriateness for the intended audience.
