Activity Work Plans
The ACT PHN Baseline Needs Assessment (BNA) has identified local priorities which in turn have informed and guided the activities for action in the Activity Work Plans. The Activity Work Plans cover the period 2019/20-2023/24 and the activities correspond with the PHN objectives. Activity Work Plans are submitted to, and approved by, the Department of Health.
