Healthy communities

Barwon Health is committed to improving our community’s wellbeing through prevention and wellness services tailored to individual and local community needs. Working with community partners across the region, Barwon Health is focused on the health and wellbeing outcomes for the whole community.

Across the organisation, services and programs engage in health promotion and prevention initiatives which enable people from our community to live healthier lives.

Our commitment to community wellbeing is shown by our membership of the World Health Organization International Network of Health Promoting Hospitals and Health Services. As a member of the network, Barwon Health encourages community participation, promotes healthy environments and integrates health promotion into its daily activities.

Traditional Owners

We, Barwon Health, acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land, the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the Elders both past and present.
