VHA Election Alert: Edition four

Posted 15 November 2018

With just over a week until the next government of Victoria is decided on Saturday 24 November, parties continue to campaign. 

The Greens have issued a big commitment to advocate on a number of community health promises, which are in line with the VHA’s Stand with Community Health campaign.

Further analysis and detail is also available on the Coalition’s funding commitment to launch a revitalised health promotion campaign, the announcement by Labor, later matched by the Coalition to redevelop Maryborough Hospital, and Labor’s community hospital announcement. All health announcements, so far, are displayed in a table, and were up to date as at Wednesday 14 November.

This is the last edition of the Victorian Election Alert before the election. Follow the VHA on Twitter and Facebook to keep up-to-date until 24 November. A post-election Victorian Election Alert will be released in the next VHA Update.

Please contact the VHA for further information or feedback on any of the announcements.
