TAL Health Sense

The rewards of taking care of your health

At TAL, health is at the heart of what we do. We’re always looking for new ways to empower you to protect your physical, mental and financial wellbeing. Because your health and well-being are as important to us as they are to you, we’ve developed Health Sense – our prevention program to enhance the health and wellbeing of Australians.

Health Sense currently involves two kinds of prevention activities:
  • Primary prevention, focusing on preventing a condition before it occurs, For example, having a healthy BMI can prevent conditions such as diabetes mellitus. Our Health Sense program is an example of primary prevention.
  • Secondary prevention, which is concerned with detecting a condition early to improve health outcomes. This typically occurs through preventative screening programs such as regular blood glucose monitoring to identify diabetes mellitus at an early stage. Our Health Sense Plus program is an example of Secondary prevention.
