What is The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre?
This video explains how The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre (the Prevention Centre) is a national collaboration of researchers, policymakers and practitioners working together to identify new ways of understanding what works to prevent lifestyle-related chronic health problems in Australia.
Our priority areas are the main lifestyle-related determinants of chronic disease risk: obesity, diet, tobacco, physical activity and alcohol. However, we are not limited in our scope and will draw on relevant research and practice from any field that can advance thinking, such as knowledge and experience gained in the fields of HIV prevention, motor vehicle accidents and Indigenous health.
The Prevention Centre aims to provide health decision-makers with the best evidence to inform their policies and programs.
