Our vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of people - now, across their life and for future generations. 

We achieve our vision by:

  • Partnering with others:  government, non-government, academic and beyond
  • Developing equity focused policies and programs for the NSW Health system, including where it connects with social care
  • Considering individuals, families, communities and populations.

When we do our work, we think about:

  • Social determinants of health
  • Evidence about what works
  • How our work will add value
  • How we will know if it did
  • Building connections and integrating care.

The Health and Social Policy Branch was established in 2016. It has five units:

  • Aged Care
  • Community Care and Priority Populations
  • Disability, Youth and Paediatric Health
  • Maternity, Child and Family
  • Integrated Service Response
