Introduction

Future focused primary health care: Australia’s Primary Health Care 10-year plan 2022-2032 states “Effective primary health can improve health outcomes at a lower cost than hospital and secondary care and helps to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations” (2022).

Analysing key health issues that impact the community can begin this process.

This assignment requires you to use current data and evidence to analyse one public health issue, discuss how the social determinants of health impact on this health issue and assess the health promotion and disease prevention strategies that can be used to mitigate this health problem.
