Our Mission

Our mission is to work collaboratively with our partners towards achieving our VISION; to improve the preventive health system to keep people chronic disease free for longer.

To do this we will:  undertake research, build research capacity, foster partnerships, and utilise knowledge translation strategies to provide better evidence aligned to the needs of public health decision makers more quickly.

Our approach will prevent chronic disease by enabling the timely selection and implementation of the most impactful interventions best suited to local contexts.

  • We will seek to reduce inequities in the chronic disease burden experienced by vulnerable persons and communities through the research we conduct, the partnerships we form and the capacity building opportunities we provide.
  • We will invest in activities that support equity focused research including through our governance, consultations, capacity building and workforce.
