Disadvantage and health
Public Health Services works to ensure the entire Tasmanian community shares in resources and opportunities that improve health and wellbeing for everyone.
We have a specific focus on individuals and groups who experience disadvantage and may be vulnerable to poorer health and wellbeing.
Our challenge is to address health inequities – the avoidable and unfair experiences and circumstances that compromise health and wellbeing.
Public Health Services works with others in the Department of Health and Human Services, with other public agencies, with all levels of government, and with the non-government, corporate and community sectors.
