We aim to build prevention system leaders, accelerate the use of new knowledge, and provide trusted advice to policy and practice.
The behaviours and other risk factors that cause chronic disease are complex and embedded into everyday life. Achieving and sustaining meaningful change requires a systems perspective – recognising the role of social, economic and environmental factors and how each of these interacts.
We bring together more than 900 academic researchers, policy partners and prevention practitioners to prioritise and co-design policy-relevant research to support evidence based action for prevention in Australia.
