Event Details

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) including mental illness and diabetes are increasing in South Australia. The prevalence of NCDs reflect the impact of a range of social determinants which shape people’s access to health promoting resources, activities and services. Yet, there has been disinvestment in disease prevention and health promotion activity within the South Australian health system.


The day will include:

  • The history of health promotion in the south of Adelaide and what current activities and structures exist.
  • A panel on how government and health system leaders think the leadership and coordination of health promotion to prevent non-communicable disease (NCDs) can be improved.
  • How urban planning can prevent NCDs including the development of the Healthy Urban Neighbourhood Transition Tool (HUNTT).
  • A hypothetical panel to discuss how the south of Adelaide became the healthiest, most equitable and sustainable region of the world by 2040


This event will be of interest to policy makers from all sectors, urban planners, researchers, health and social service workers, local government elected members and community members.

Hosted by the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity, College of Medicine and Public Health, Flinders University.

The Healthy South project was funded by Health Translation SA through the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Rapid Applied Research Translation Program undertaken in 2019.
