Public Health Hotline
Public Health Services works to improve and protect the health and wellbeing of all Tasmanians. We partner with individuals, groups and communities statewide to achieve this outcome.
Because prevention is better (and cheaper) than cure we aim to:
- protect Tasmanians from public and environmental health hazards
- prevent and reduce chronic diseases and injuries
- prepare for and respond to public health emergencies like flu pandemics
- promote good health
- reduce inequalities in health.
