#PreventionWorksLIVE

Stories from Australia’s change-makers in public health

#PreventionWorksLIVE is a masterclass series with Australia’s leading innovators on creating a healthier Australia. The series, hosted by The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre, examines how change-makers have achieved real impact for the health and wellbeing of communities.

Prevention is better than cure but preventing poor health and disease is harder than it sounds. So how do we get prevention on the political agenda? How do we get urban planners and governments thinking about liveability? How do we improve our food system? #PreventionWorksLIVE sets the conversation and leads the dialogue in the prevention of chronic disease.

Join us to learn how to achieve impact and create change for a healthier Australia.

Creating systems change for physical activity

Thursday 8 July 2021, 2.00-3.00pm (AEST)

Addressing physical inactivity is recognised as a major challenge for prevention, and efforts in Australia to date have been intermittent and un-coordinated. No national physical activity policy exists in Australia, although such a framework is essential for progress. Furthermore, despite much NHMRC funded research assessing the effectiveness of individual interventions, little integration has occurred across sectors that could contribute to a more active Australia.
