Better Health Channel

The Better Health Channel website was founded in 1999 by the Victorian Department of Human Services, Australia as a consumer health information website for the Victorian community.

The site’s aim has always been to provide free health and medical information in an easy to understand format and language.

Thanks to the support of Better Health Channel visitors, partners and staff, what started as a modest website of around 100 facts sheets has now become a large repository of over 1,770 facts sheets, hundreds of healthy recipes, interactive features and health tools, directories and more.
