Taking preventative action – a response to Australia: The Healthiest Country by 2020 – the report of the National Preventative Health Taskforce.

Canberra: Preventative Health Taskforce

From April 2008 the National Preventative Health Taskforce havas been developing strategies to tackle the health challenges faced by all Australians, caused by tobacco, alcohol and obesity. In October 2008, the Taskforce released a discussion paper, Australia: the healthiest country by 2020 and three associated technical papers on obesity, tobacco and alcohol. These documents formed the basis for conducting consultations and calling for public submissions.

Following this review and consultation process, the Taskforce released its final report in September 2009, titled Australia: the Healthiest Country by 2020. The Taskforce put forward 136 recommendations and 35 areas for action, tackling obesity, tobacco and alcohol as key drivers of chronic disease.
Taking preventative action - a response to Australia: The Healthiest Country by 2020 - the report of the National Preventative Health is a report outlining how the Commonwealth government has responded to the recommendations of the Taskforce. The issues and outcomes that will impact most on the Indigenous population include tobacco control and prevention for Indigenous Australians.
