The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre is a national collaboration established in June 2013 to increase the use of prevention research in policy and practice. Taking a systems approach and working in partnership with policy agencies, we research new ways of preventing Australia’s greatest health challenge: lifestyle-related chronic diseases.

The Prevention Centre has created a strong platform for research translation through effective collaborations with policy agencies, built capacity in system thinking, and created new knowledge about systems change for prevention. Now that we have good evidence about what we could do better in prevention, we are working to put our research into action.
