Health 2040 – VCOSS Submission to discussion paper on the future of healthcare in Victoria

VCOSS welcomes this opportunity to provide feedback on the Health 2040 discussion paper on the future of the health system in Victoria. We envision a system where health is everyone’s business and is focused on preventing illness and ensuring all Victorians can achieve and maintain good health. The community sector has an important but sometimes unrecognized role in the health system, including by engaging marginalised communities and individuals, addressing the social determinants of health, delivering healthcare services directly and building community resilience that protects against and prevents poor health.
