The 2016 Action Agenda update sets out our priorities for 2016─19 and builds on the inaugural Action Agenda released in 2013. The changes reflect the wider health environment we currently operate in.

Our five strategic imperatives remain, with associated three-year priorities:

  • Promoting healthy eating
  • Encouraging regular physical activity
  • Preventing tobacco use
  • Preventing harm from alcohol
  • Improving mental wellbeing.

Three themes will frame all aspects of our work in 2016─19:  Gender, Youth, Community.
