Connect4Health was established in 2014 to enable a more collaborative approach to primary health service delivery and planning in the Inner East Melbourne region.

Link Health and Community partners with Carrington Health and Access Health and Community to provide a planned approach to community-based healthcare, enabling better support to vulnerable people residing within the municipalities of Boroondara, Whitehorse, Manningham and Monash.

Guided by a shared vision for improved health and wellbeing for these communities, Connect4Health plan to respond to these challenges through the pursuit of three strategic objectives:

  1. Improve equity and universal access to services
  2. Support community partnerships
  3. Share resources and expertise
