Keeping the community healthy
Eastern Health Authority (EHA) has a proud history of promoting and enforcing public health standards in Adelaide’s eastern and inner northern suburbs.
Continuing in the tradition of the East Torrens Council Board, which operated from 1899, to the present day regional subsidiary protecting the health and wellbeing of about 160,000 residents plus visitors, EHA is an example of council shared service delivery at its very best.
Established under the Local Government Act (1999), we work across our Constituent Councils to improve public and environmental health standards.
Our Board of Management includes two representatives from each of our Constituent Councils and is responsible for ensuring EHA acts within its charter.
Our role covers vital public and environment health services such as immunisation, hygiene and sanitation control, licensing and monitoring of Supported Residential Facilities (SRFs); and inspection and regulation of food outlets.
With a single focus, and highly specialised and experienced staff, EHA is well-equipped to deal with the increasing diversity and complexity of public and environmental health.
