Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance

About the ACDPA

The Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (ACDPA) is an alliance of five non-government health organisations who are working together in the primary prevention of chronic disease, with particular emphasis on the shared risk factors of poor nutrition, physical inactivity, overweight and obesity and their social determinants.

The members of the ACDPA are:

  1. Cancer Council Australia
  2. Diabetes Australia
  3. Kidney Health Australia
  4. National Heart Foundation of Australia
  5. Stroke Foundation

ACDPA contributes to national policy discussions by providing an independent voice addressing key risk factors of chronic disease and advocating for policy that recognises the value of prevention. ACDPA develops evidence-based policies and recommendations through position statements and submissions to government.
