Healthier Campaspe

  • Kyabram District Health Service

  • Campaspe Primary Care Partnership


Health services within the Campaspe local government area have established a partnership approach to look at ways to address the issues that have the most impact on their services collectively. The structure used to support this approach was developed in 2015 by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and referred to as the Service Planning Logic model.


Healthier Campaspe is a local place based partnership approach with working groups addressing chronic issues including:

  • Cancer
  • Mental Health
  • Alcohol & Other Drugs
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity

The key partners sought to use the planning logic to develop a combined service plan/implementation plan that considers system needs and capabilities; innovation; investment priorities; area needs and capabilities; and technical guidelines.


Healthier Campaspe was initiated though the Campaspe Health Needs Analysis Project that involved three key components:

  1. Preparation of Evidence Summaries for each priority
  2. Engagement, consultation and collaborative planning
  3. Development of a shared 4 year Implementation Plan for 2016-2020
