Invest 5% of total government health expenditure on preventive health by 2030
Our loved ones – from our infants to our elders – should have the opportunity to live healthy, full lives. We know that 38% of illness, disease and early deaths can be prevented and this unfairly impacts Victorians who are most in need. To protect all Victorians from preventable illness, and reduce strain on the State’s hospitals, the Victorian government must commit to increase spending on preventive health to 5% of the State’s overall health budget.
