Colac Area Health has achieved Gold standard for the Global Network of Tobacco Free Healthcare Services.

Colac Area Health is the first health service in Australia to reach gold standard, which is a huge achievement.

As a result of this, Erin McClusky and Di O’Dowd presented at the Gold Forum event which is held as part of the International Health Promoting Hospitals Conference in Vienna, Austria last week.

This was a fabulous opportunity to share Colac Area Health work and experiences with other health services from around the world, as well as learn about what these services are doing to address the Tobacco epidemic within their communities.
