The Western Australian Health Promotion Strategic Framework 2017–2021 (WA HPSF) sets out a strategic plan for reducing the prevalence of chronic disease and injury over the next five years chiefly by targeting common risk factors: being overweight or obese, having a poor diet, getting insufficient physical activity, smoking, and consuming alcohol at harmful levels.
The main target groups are the population of WA who are currently well, and population groups with a higher risk of developing chronic disease or experiencing injury than the general population. The WA HPSF is guided by four principles: (1) adopting a comprehensive whole-of-population approach; (2) working in partnership and building capacity; (3) intervening early and throughout life; (4) promoting equity and inclusivity.
