The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021 (MPHWP) aims to protect, improve and promote the health and wellbeing of people living in Hepburn Shire.  The plan outlines how Council, with support from other local health partners, will work to address key health priorities to achieve a higher level of health and wellbeing for people who live, work and play in Hepburn Shire.

The four priority areas are as follows:

  1. Health Eating and Active Living
  2. Healthy and Safe Environments
  3. Social Inclusion and Community Resilience
  4. Preventing Family Violence
