Browse our library of fact sheets for useful information on a range of health and wellbeing topics.

Immunisation facts

Immunisation prevents many illnesses in children and adults. Immunising yourself or your children is important for your health and the health of your community because when enough people are immunised, diseases no longer spread.

Healthy mind

How we think and feel can affect our emotional, mental and physical health.

Learning to manage our anger, change our outlook on life or address psychological issues can help keep our mind active and healthy.

Weight management

Managing your weight means a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Fad diets are not the answer.

A healthy weight may vary for different people. Some health conditions can make it difficult to control weight gain.

Genetics and your health

Your genes are the instructions for your body’s development and function. Sometimes changes occur in these instructions. This can cause genetic conditions. Around half of all Australians will be affected by a condition that is at least partly genetic in origin. These conditions may be present at birth or appear later in life.

Health checks

What health checks do you need?

Regular health checks can prevent many diseases and catch others before it’s too late to change their course.

Some health checks and screening tests can help prevent serious illness like cancer.

See what health checks are relevant to you.


Whatever the age of your child, parenting requires lifelong skills. Good communication is the key to a good relationship with the children in your life.

Being a parent is a joyful and rewarding experience but it can be challenging. Your child’s needs change as they get older. Knowing what to expect can make parenting less stressful.
