Healthy Cities Onkaparinga (formerly Healthy Cities Noarlunga) is a non-government organisation coalition of agencies and community members which addresses health issues using the World Health Organisation’s ‘Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion’ as its primary reference. Healthy Cities Onkaparinga has developed a process that provides community members with the opportunity not only to raise important health issues with representatives from the public and private sector, but also the opportunity to work with these groups to address the health issues.
Healthy Cities Onkaparinga is directed by a Management Committee, with places for eight community members and seven members from organisations and agencies committed to promoting the health of the Onkaparinga community. HCO has links with the City of Onkaparinga, the Southern Adelaide Health Service and Flinders University.
