SA Health will lead and deliver a comprehensive and sustainable health system that aims to ensure healthier, longer and better lives for all South Australians.

We will achieve our aims by:

  • commitment to a health system that produces positive health outcomes by focusing on health promotion, illness prevention and early intervention.

We will work with other government agencies and the community to address the environmental, socioeconomic, biological and behavioural determinants of health and to achieve equitable health outcomes for all South Australians.

Our values

We are committed to the values of integrity, respect and accountability.

We value care, excellence, innovation, creativity, leadership and equity in health care provision and health outcomes.

We demonstrate our values in our interactions with others in SA Health, the community and those for whom we care.
