The QPHF partnering approach capitalises on each organisation’s expertise and areas of influence to develop the most appropriate course of action for intervention in key public health issues.
The QPHF facilitates collaboration between organisations with the aim of maximising public health outcomes. This collaborative approach provides benefits in terms of integrating public health initiatives, minimising duplication of effort and defining a clear strategic position to advocate.
QPHF has identified key public health issues which will respond to effective intervention strategies and has developed a process for the advancement of these issues. QPHF also encourages research and workforce development that will facilitate sustainable public health outcomes and supports public health developments which are consistent with the purpose and goal of the QPHF.
The goal of the QPHF is to improve the health status of the individuals and communities of Queensland – Healthy Queenslanders, Healthy Communities.
