National Preventative Health Strategy Expert Steering Committee

Additional information

The Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt MP announced in June 2019 that the Australian Government would develop a National Preventive Health Strategy (the Strategy). The Strategy forms part of the third pillar for mental health and preventive health as outlined in Australia’s Long Term National Health Plan.

The Strategy will be a long-term 10 year plan and will build on other strategic work that has already been developed, or is currently being drafted. This includes the National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions, the National Obesity Strategy and the National Tobacco Strategy.

The Strategy aims to help Australians improve their health at all stages of life, through early intervention, better information, and targeting modifiable risk factors and the broader causes of poor health.

Expert Steering Committee
An Expert Steering Committee (the Committee), chaired by Dr Lisa Studdert, Deputy Secretary Department of Health, has been appointed to provide advice on the development of the Strategy. The Committee is composed of experts from across the public health, research, health promotion, medical, allied health and nursing fields.
