The City of Kalamunda Community Health and Wellbeing Plan 2013-2016 identifies the health and wellbeing needs of the Kalamunda community and establishes priorities and strategies to guide the City over the next three years.  It informs the way in which public health is managed within the City of Kalamunda and provides the framework for an integrated and collaborative approach that will support and enhance the community’s ability to lead healthy, productive and rewarding lives. 

An analysis of demographic and health statistical data from federal, state and local area health agencies was completed and combined with the result of a thorough community consultation process. The analysis was conducted in a life stages model to identify how the health status of the community can be impacted by the Social Determinants of Health (for example socio-economic status), environment, genetic predisposition, and lifestyle choices.

Six Priority Program Areas have been identified:

  1. Alcohol Consumption;
  2. Children’s Health & Development;
  3. Community Engagement;
  4. Environmental Health;
  5. Obesity Prevention; and
  6. Smoking.
