Health Promotion Events

Health promotion is crucial to improving the overall health and well-being of individuals and communities. At Family Planning Tasmania, we understand the importance of promoting good health practices and empowering our clients and community to make informed decisions about their health.

Health promotion is the process of enabling and empowering people to increase control over and improve their health. It involves actions that support healthy behaviours and lifestyles and creates environments that promote good health. This can include activities such as education, advocacy, and community outreach.

At Family Planning Tasmania, we believe that health promotion is essential to our mission to provide high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare to the Tasmanian community. By promoting healthy behaviours and lifestyles, we can help our clients prevent disease, reduce the risk of unintended pregnancies, and improve their overall quality of life.

We work with our staff, stakeholders, and the wider community to develop and implement health promotion strategies tailored to our clients’ unique needs and circumstances. We believe that by working together, we can create a healthier, more resilient community better equipped to face future challenges.

We welcome opportunities to work with partners outside of the organisation, to deliver health promotion activities at community organisation events, expos and in-school awareness days, although as a non-profit, we have limited resources, and have to discern the opportunities that will have the greatest impact on our community. We invite you to submit a request via the form below outlining the details of the event you might like us to attend, and we will be in contact to discuss how we can best work together.

Thank you for your interest in our organisation and how we can work together to improve the sexual and reproductive health outcomes of the Tasmanian community.
