Health Equity Awards 2024

Adelaide PHN has hosted the Health Equity Awards (previously Primary Health Care Awards) every year to recognise the hard work and dedication of our region’s primary health care organisations, who have been responsive to our community’s needs in an ever-changing environment. Winners are awarded and celebrated at an annual dinner. 

This year, we're presenting our 2024 awards with a focus on health equity. This will help ensure that primary care organisations and individuals who are working to promote equal and fair opportunities for vulnerable communities in metropolitan Adelaide achieve the recognition they deserve.


The Health Equity Awards 2024 will recognise outstanding organisations and individuals for their efforts to continuously improve equity and access for vulnerable communities in the Adelaide metropolitan region.

These awards will recognise organisations and/or individuals who have:

  • Improved health outcomes in our region. 
  • Achieved equity for vulnerable populations groups through improved access and outcomes. 
  • Improved patient journeys of care through alliances and partnerships with key primary care stakeholders in the local region.


Our Way of Thinking

The development of criteria, assessment matrix, and branding for this year's Awards was driven primarily by our focus on health equity.


Our 2024 Award Logo


By using a variety of graphic heights to symbolise health equity, our logo aims to demonstrate equity, as illustrated below, where various individuals require various supports to achieve their optimal state of health.

Awards are open to all current Adelaide PHN commissioned service providers, Adelaide PHN partners and general practices or those that are part of our Advisory Councils’ activities.

The achievements described in the nomination must have been delivered within the Adelaide PHN region, be current and have taken place, or been developed in, the last financial year.
