Victorian Primary Care Partnership

Southern Grampians Glenelg Primary Care Partnership acknowledged that their programmatic work towards healthy eating and physical activity was not making an impact on obesity in the community. A partnership was formed with Global Obesity Centre (GLOBE) at Deakin University and they commenced co-creating an approach towards changes at multiple levels of the system, and mobilisation of the broader community to become change makers. There was an agreement that children need to be the primary target group for this work, whilst recognising the whole community needs to engage in taking action to provide universal benefit.
