Chronic diseases are the biggest health challenge of the 21st century. The AHPC chronic disease program was designed to help facilitate strategic opportunities for governments, public health, community and industry to work together to meet this challenge.
We lead a national collaborative accountability and action project which is based on the WHO’s noncommunicable disease global action plan.
In 2015 we helped to develop chronic disease prevention and reduction targets for Australia and in 2016 we released the first report card - Australia's Health Tracker - measuring progress against the targets. This national project was supported by our signatories as listed on our Statement of Commitment.
