Our Partnerships

The Department of Health and Human Services works collaboratively with a number of local and national partners to ensure the best health and wellbeing outcomes and services for Tasmanians.

Strategic partnerships with organisations such as the University of Tasmania, Divisions of General Practice and the Tasmanian Police Service help us progress change and innovation in health and human services.

We are key contributor to Tasmania Together - a community owned vision for the state developed - and coordinate and contribute to nearly 30 of its indicators and targets.
