In response to the Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiries the Victorian Government designated the Latrobe Valley as a Health Innovation Zone, the first of its kind in Australia.
The formation of the Latrobe Health Assembly is a key component of the Health Innovation Zone, paving the way for a new era of community engagement, health improvement and integration of health and community services for people with complex conditions.
The Latrobe Health Assembly offers the community a chance to drive health and wellbeing priorities and consider new ways of working with local services and government, with a focus on innovative ideas and approaches.
The majority of members are from the community, with a diverse representation from various locations, professions, demographics and connections to communities and groups.
