VAHI plays a leading role in building a comprehensive picture of the health of Victorians through its population health program. 

The population health program has been running for over 20 years in Victoria, underpinned by the annual Victorian Population Health Survey. VAHI collects, analyses, interprets, and communicates data relating to the health status of the population, informing policy development, highlighting key needs and areas of concern and directing health interventions and activities. 

Population health is a key part of VAHI’s refreshed reporting strategy, which is driving improvement in the quality, timeliness, range and accessibility of population- level data and insights.
