Event description

Description

One in two Australians are living with a chronic disease. Dealing with these diseases comes at an estimated $27 billion cost to the Australian community and accounts for more than a third (36 per cent) of our national health budget.

Join us at the Prevention 1st Forum to find out how much Australia spends on preventive health and what we need to do to address the looming health crisis of chronic disease.

The forum will include a launch of the La Trobe University report, Preventive health: How much does Australia spend and is it enough? by health economist Professor Alan Shiell.

Hear leading public health experts make their pitch; how would they invest in preventive health if they had $100 million to spend?

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.

More details to come.
