How would our leading public health experts invest in preventative health if they had $100 million to spend?
One in two Australians are living with a chronic disease, costing an estimated $27 billion to the Australian community and accounting for more than one third or 36% of the National Health Budget.
Prevention 1st is a preventative health campaign backed by like-minded public health organisations, not-for-profits, research and advocacy bodies of which Dementia Australia is a part, working together to promote evidence-based, public policy that will stop and prevent the rising burden of chronic disease.
You can hear how the experts would tackle the looming health crisis of chronic disease at the Prevention 1st Forum Prevention better than cure: spending to save Australian lives on Wednesday 14 June from 9.30am-11.30am Australian Parliament House, Canberra.
Prevention first calls on all Australian governments and political parties to commit to a strong preventive health agenda to tackle Australia’s greatest health challenge. Representatives from the Coalition, Labor Party, The Greens and Nick Xenophon Team have been invited to outline their plans for preventive health measures to tackle our nation’s greatest health challenge.
