Health Promotion at GSHS

Gippsland Southern Health Service work as part of a wider primary prevention & health promotion team across Bass Coast and South Gippsland.

The South Coast Prevention Team is a result of a strong commitment by Bass Coast Health, Gippsland Southern Health Service, South Gippsland Hospital and South Coast Primary & Community Partnership to work collectively across the sub-region with pooled health promotion resources. This model provides clearer policy direction and delivers better alignment of prevention work to the broader health agenda across the sub-region.

In response to local identified health issues a four-year plan has been established that guides the work across the sub-region. The 2017 – 2021 South Coast Integrated Prevention Action Plan identifies three key health priorities. 


The priority health areas are;

  • Preventing violence and injury

  • Improving sexual and reproductive health

  • Healthier eating and active living
