ACDPA Alliance

Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance

The National Stroke Foundation is a member of the Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (ACDPA), an alliance of five non-government health organisations. The ACDPA focuses on the primary prevention of chronic disease and the shared risk factors of poor nutrition, physical inactivity, overweight and obesity, and their social determinants.

The ACDPA comprises:

Cancer Council Australia
Diabetes Australia
Kidney Health Australia
National Heart Foundation of Australia
National Stroke Foundation


The ACDPA aims to:
  • Develop evidence-based recommendations and initiatives that will contribute to the prevention of chronic disease and to provide leadership and a strong unified advocacy voice for the prevention of chronic disease
  • Make evidence-based recommendations on priorities for action in the prevention of chronic disease to government
  • Develop initiatives contributing to the prevention of chronic disease, which may be best achieved through the collaborative work of ACDPA members, while complementing the activities of member organisations
  • Work cooperatively with government and members of parliament at all levels, including the Australian Department of Health and Ageing, and state/territory departments of health in the development and implementation of programs for the prevention of chronic disease
  • Work co-operatively with other organisations, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health organisations, which are active in the field of chronic disease prevention, as appropriate
