Understanding, treatment and prevention of chronic diseases

Chronic disease is an ongoing burden in Australia, but research over the past two decades has identified that most chronic diseases are preventable. Prevention and management is heavily dependent on intervention as early as possible, which includes the integration of population health activities with lifestyle, communication and better decision making.
