Community health delivering outcomes to protect Melbourne’s North

Community health orginisations are known for being connected to the needs of our communities and able to reach them through health interventions that meet their unique needs. By taking an evidence based yet community-led approach, we ensure that our clients and local communities can access inclusive and affirming care that’s delivered with their needs in focus. Our strong connection to those we serve, coupled with robust clinical governance and community engagement, puts us in a unique position to swiftly deliver effective health services and supports. This has never been more evident than in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and can be applied to the broad range of healthcare needs.

While the State-wide vaccination campaign was successfully encouraging many Victorians to get vaccinated, misinformation, vaccine hesitancy, and scapegoating of ethnic and cultural groups in the media took their toll. Understanding that a culturally safe, inclusive and accessible service was key to improving vaccination rates in the northern suburbs, we knew that community health was the answer.

Partnering with healthAbility, Banyule Community Health, City of Darabin, North Eastern Public Health Unit and the Islamic Museum of Australia, we had the privilege to support thousands of fellow residents through this health crisis.
