About the Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance
The Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (ACDPA) incorporates the former National Vascular Disease Prevention Alliance (NVDPA) and brings together six leading non-government health organisations to prevent chronic health conditions in Australia.
Cancer Council Australia, Diabetes Australia, Kidney Health Australia, Lung Foundation, National Heart Foundation of Australia and Stroke Foundation work together to collectively advocate for preventing chronic health conditions, integrating risk assessment, and effective management of chronic health conditions. This includes:
- supporting the health system shift towards prevention
- creating supportive food and physical environments
- increasing risk assessment, early detection and management of risk.
Chronic health conditions are Australia's greatest health challenge and the leading causes of illness, disability and death. However, much of the burden could be prevented by addressing modifiable risk factors and providing support to manage risk.
This guideline is a collaboration between four of the ACDPA member organisations: Diabetes Australia, Kidney Health Australia, National Heart Foundation of Australia and Stroke Foundation.
The Heart Foundation, on behalf of the Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance, gratefully acknowledges the funding received from the Australian Government for this project.
