Welcome to VHBA In Brief
In this issue you can see our latest project milestones and find out how we are:
- Designing health infrastructure for all Victorians

Celebrating healthcare design
Melbourne Design Week runs 17-27 March 2022 and explores how design can be used as a force for 'civic good' and 'making good'.
To celebrate, we’re exploring how the Victorian Health Building Authority aligns with these pillars in designing health facilities to meet the needs of Victorians.
Learn how we're designing for good:
- Designing for cultural safety
- Designing for dementia
- Designing emergency departments to support autistic children
- Designing for young people experiencing mental ill health
- Designing sustainable health infrastructure
In the spotlight
Responding to the Mental Health Royal Commission
The Commission set out to redesign Victoria’s mental health and wellbeing system to benefit the whole Victorian community. Learn how we're delivering a number of dedicated infrastructure projects in response to the key recommendations.
