G21 Health & Wellbeing Pillar
The G21 Health & Wellbeing (HWB) Pillar provides a forum for organisations with an interest in the region’s health and wellbeing to work together on strategic priorities.
As the region’s Primary Care Partnership (auspiced by G21), the Pillar supports healthy places, people and coordinated care through a clear vision, purpose, strategic directions and governance system.
The HWB Strategic Plan (2017-18) guides the Pillar's priority areas for collaborative effort; healthier eating and active living, promoting gender equity, improving social connectedness and mental health and wellbeing, capacity building and leadership.
Communities in the G21 region will enjoy a high quality of life, achieved through inclusion, participation, creativity and vibrant, collaborative partnerships.

Primary Care Partnerships (PCPs)
As the region’s Primary Care Partnership, the G21 Health and Wellbeing Pillar is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services. This provides staff to strengthen collaboration and integration across sectors to maximise health and wellbeing outcomes, promote health equity and minimise unnecessary hospital presentations and admissions.
There are 28 PCPs across Victoria. For further information, click here.
