Annual General Meeting (AGM)

2022 AGM: Early childhood

Early childhood is a critical time for health, development and establishing the foundations for future wellbeing. The healthy development of children is crucial to the future wellbeing of all community members.

In the Brisbane south region, while many children are doing well and will start school with the ability to progress, in some parts of the region more than 1 in 3 children need help with their development. This compares to 1 in 5 children nationally.

Brisbane South PHN’s 2022 AGM discusses the importance of the first 2000 days, ongoing systemic challenges; and what we are doing, in collaboration, to change the situation, and why it’s working.

The 4th edition of Primary Health Impact explores our AGM theme of early childhood further on how we have collaborated on a First 2000 Days approach to early childhood development, alongside our partners and community leaders, to support the first 5 years of a child’s life.

2021 AGM: First Nations

In the spirit of reconciliation, partnership and mutual respect, Brisbane South PHN works with First Nations peoples to shape a health system which responds to the needs and aspirations of our communities.

We work to support all First Nations peoples in our region to live well and experience care that is culturally safe, connected, high-quality and easy to access. Our goal is to enable optimal health, development and wellbeing across all stages of life.

View our 2021 AGM online as we share our work to deliver on this goal – alongside the insights and expertise of our First Nations partners.
