Health and Wellbeing Queensland (HWQld) is the state’s prevention agency, committed to creating a healthier and fairer future for Queensland.
Our priority is to work with the Queensland health system to reduce the impacts of chronic disease, especially for those who unfairly experience poorer health due to circumstances that are out of their control.
We know that shifting the balance of focus towards improving health and wellbeing, as well as optimising healthcare, is critical to creating a healthier and more sustainable future.
We are committed to working in partnership across government, communities and other sectors to address the underlying factors that drive chronic ill-health through collaborative, evidence-based and community-focused action.
Together, we can create a future where all Queenslanders have the best chance to lead a healthier life, no matter who they are or where they live.
