Population Health Division
Population Health Division is part of the Allied Health and Community Programs Directorate of the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (NBMLHD).
The Division is responsible for addressing primary and secondary disease prevention within our local community.
Improving the health of the Nepean Blue Mountains population is crucial to both the Local Health District’s organisational goals and its capacity to reduce preventable hospital admissions.
Population Health aims to improve the health of the population and to reduce health inequities among population groups. In order to reach these objectives, it delivers upon a broad range of principles and practices
that influence the quality of health. The delivery of effective, evidence-informed population health programs is core to achieving these goals.
The Population Health Division employs a range of health professionals from allied health, nursing and health education to deliver services to priority populations including Aboriginal and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse
communities. Priority health issues targeted are healthy weight, tobacco control, sexual health, harm minimisation and fall injury prevention.
The Division consists of the following units:
- Aboriginal Health (including Mootang Tarimi)
- Health Promotion (Sexual Health, Healthy Weight, Tobacco Control and Falls Prevention)
- HIV and Related Programs (NSP Program and viral hepatitis programs)
- Multicultural Health (coordinates Interpreter Services)
