Spread the community health message

Posted 05 September 2018

As it gets closer to the Victorian Election, with 72 days to go, it’s important to continue spreading the Stand with Community Health message.

You can show your support for the campaign, and the valuable role that community health services play, by getting involved on social media.

Simply:

  • go to the campaign website
  • head to the resources page
  • download the campaign materials - posters, Instagram tiles, suggested social media posts
  • post a resource to your social media channel to show that you Stand with Community Health.

The support shown on social media is a key part of our attempt to make sure that people know and politicians understand that community health services need to be adequately resourced.

Launched in partnership between the VHA and the state’s 29 community health services, the Stand with Community Health campaign is focused on securing six key ‘asks’ from politicians in the lead up to the November Election, as well as spreading the message to the public online and in health services.
