$68 million investment to get Queenslanders healthy

Health and Wellbeing Queensland (HWQld) has today announced a $68 million investment to support community-based programs to improve Queenslanders’ health and wellbeing.

This significant funding injection comes as new Queensland research showed 45% of Queenslanders self-reported to have gained weight during COVID-19, with 21% reporting a weight gain of over 5kg.

Healthier Tuckshops Program, Deadly Choices, Jamie’s Ministry of Food, 10,000 Steps, QCWA Country Kitchens, and My health for life will use the funding to provide free and low-cost healthy lifestyle support programs to communities across the state.
