Develop a Victorian Public Health Officer (PHO) training program
Our communities learnt through COVID-19 that highly skilled public health professionals are important to protect health, inclusion and the peace of the whole community, and to protect our health system from overload. With climate change, we will see more frequent health emergencies in the future. Establishing a three-year training scheme to assess, train and place at least 10 medically and non-medically trained staff ($7 million per annum) will enable the health and protection of our communities into the future.
Learn why, and the policy context, in our election platform document.
