The Calendar should be used as a supporting resource for your local community or service health promotion planning. When you have a clear idea from your clients, participants, staff and communities of what the priorities are, the calendar can then be used to help you plan when you begin a program or host an event.
Keep in mind that organising activities and programs often takes more time than originally expected so consider how much time and the resources you have available before committing to regular events.
Don't forget to visit the relevant health and wellbeing websites listed in the calendar where you can access accurate and up to date information about each awareness campaign, as well as relevant information about the health issue you wish to promote.
The calendar is made up of international, national and state awareness campaigns, there are many awareness campaigns in existence, this is not an exhaustive list. Items included in the calendar are based on the determinants of health and the Working in Health Promoting Ways Framework, principles or practice, priority areas and health literacy.
This year the calendar has been designed using health literacy principles. How we can improve the way our health systems are set up and how we can communicate as healthcare providers to make it easier for people to find, use and understand information and services. The calendar is a two-sided poster and can be printed in A4 or A3 to make it easier to read.
