Healthy Communities

The Healthy Communities initiative brings an integrated approach to sports, health and athlete wellbeing.

The Healthy Communities vision is to promote the health and wellbeing of Special Olympics athletes and others with intellectual disability, to enable people with an intellectual disability to have the same access to health and wellness resources as other members of the community and to be able to attain the same level of good health.

Developing partnerships and building an awareness of the health needs of people with intellectual disability will pave the way to improved access to health care services and follow-up. Healthy lifestyle choices will be supported by health education, health promotion and participation in sport.
