Wodonga Council has a long-standing commitment to creating a healthy and well community.
In line with the World Health Organisation and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Wodonga Council believes that everyone living, working, or visiting the city has an equal right to good health, safety and equitable access to inclusion and participation.
To achieve these objectives, as well as meet our statutory requirements under the Local Government Act, the council has developed and adopted a Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan, this plan is integrated in the Council Plan 2017-2018 to 2020-2021.
The Public Heath and Wellbeing Act 2008 requires, with the involvement of community, an analysis of local health determinants, trends and health and wellbeing indicators to improve and promote public and wellbeing within the municipality.
