Victorian Election 2022

Exercise for good health and a strong economy

Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) is calling on candidates for the 2022 Victorian Election to support these five policy priorities to ensure all Victorians are provided with better access to exercise services to support good health outcomes and a strong economy:

  • Increase access to exercise physiology for people with mental health conditions
  • Expand access to exercise physiology for people with cancer
  • Improve access to exercise physiology for workers with chronic and complex injuries, including psychological injuries
  • Expand access to exercise physiology for people with diabetes and other chronic diseases
  • Increase preventive health investment to 5% of total annual health expenditure.

The five priorities provide significant opportunities for the next Victorian Government to enhance prevention, early intervention and the treatment of chronic conditions and mental health to support Victorians to lead healthy and active lives.
