The new South Australian Public Health Act 2011 was passed by Parliament in June 2011.
The Act provides a new legislative framework for public health in South Australia. It is considered innovative and far-reaching in the way it addresses 21st century public health issues through state and local government action. The Act also develops processes and strategies which engage the non-government, community and business sectors. Further details on the legislation can be found on the SA Health website.
This seminar offers an opportunity to hear about the key features of this new legislation and to open discussions about how the new Act may intersect with your work. In particular, this session will discuss the implications and opportunities of the new Act for public health research and education in this state.
