How can Australia make better progress in improving health through prevention? This question will be at the forefront of a roundtable discussion bringing together some of the nation’s top cross-sector experts and policy makers in Sydney this month.
The Academy is hosting the Advancing prevention in Australia roundtable on 26 July in partnership with Saltire Capital Partners as part of the 2023 Health Horizons Forum.
This roundtable will examine the opportunities and limitations associated with the National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2030, as well as identifying key knowledge gaps and areas where improvements can be made to improve health and reduce the burden of disease from chronic conditions in Australia.
Chaired by Professor Don Nutbeam FAHMS, Executive Director of Sydney Health Partners and Professor of Public Health at The University of Sydney, the roundtable will bring together a cross-section of key industry leaders, experts and policymakers.
This roundtable is the second event in the 2023 Health Horizons Forum, designed to identify the next big ideas, future challenges and opportunities that could transform the health of the Australian community in the coming decades.
The Advancing Prevention in Australia roundtable will examine:
- Advancing strategies and opportunities for improving prevention of disease in Australia, as highlighted in the National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2030.
- Barriers to implementation and opportunities for better implementation to benefit the whole community.
- The identification of key knowledge gaps in our understanding of preventive health strategies or their implementation.
