UPDATE: Stand with Community Health campaign

Posted 30 August 2018

Now in its third week, the ‘Stand with Community Health’ campaign has achieved some early successes as the Victorian Election looms closer.

On the day of the launch the campaign hashtag #standwithcommunityhealth trended on Twiter in Australia, while the campaign website, has had over 1800 page views. Importantly, at the VHA Annual Conference, spokespeople from both the Green Party and the Reason Party set out their support for the proposals, with Nina Springle, Deputy Leader of the Victorian Greens, signing the pledge on stage.

Launched in partnership by the VHA and the state’s 29 community health services, the 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.

You can show your support for the campaign by:

  • making the Stand with Community Health pledge
  • reaching out to your MPs and making them aware of the campaign ‘asks’
  • taking part in the social media conversation
  • coordinating your own campaign activities to show that you Stand with Community Health.
