About SEPHU

Learn more about the South East Public Health Unit (SEPHU).

Monash Health’s South East Public Health Unit (SEPHU) is one of nine public health units across Victoria.

Initially established to prevent and respond to the spread of COVID-19, the Unit now plays a larger role in public health initiatives across the south-east suburbs of Melbourne and along the Peninsula. This is realised through strong collaboration between Monash Health, Alfred Health and Peninsula Health.

Our key stakeholders include Victoria’s Department of Health, local councils, local healthcare providers, and community groups.

The SEPHU vision is to work in partnership and collaboration to facilitate seamless access to our combined services to deliver independence and the best health outcomes for the diverse communities we serve.
