What impact do the places where you live, learn, work and play have on your health? In this edition of the VicHealth Letter, we explore how our individual choices are influenced by built, social, natural and economic environments.

We also get a glimpse of how we can improve wellbeing by changing our approaches for example, to urban planning, improving access to fruit and vegetables, and creating healthy workplaces or sporting environments.

This edition also features:

  • improving wellbeing through urban planning, better access to fruit and vegetables, and creating healthy workplaces or sporting environments
  • Q & A with Jerril Rechter
  • highlights of health promotion initiatives across the world
  • updates on VicHealth research
