About the project 

The National Consumer Engagement Strategy for Preventive Health (the Strategy) will develop ways and tools to help government engage with consumers to co-design policies and health initiatives, as part of the National Preventive Health Strategy.

Our task is to provide practical guidance, including practice principles, tools, education and resources. Most importantly, we are looking for our research and consultations to help us discover and assess how consumers want government policymakers to engage with them, so that we can build them into the Strategy’s ‘toolkit’.

This project is funded by the Department of Health and Aged Care. It is being undertaken jointly by the Mitchell Institute at Victoria University and the Consumers Health Forum, with 89 Degrees East, a stakeholder communications and engagement consultancy.
