Release of the National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions

The National Strategic Framework for Chronic Conditions provides guidance for the development and implementation of policies, strategies, actions and services to reduce the impact of chronic conditions in Australia. It supersedes the National Chronic Disease Strategy 2005 and associated National Service Improvement Frameworks.

The Framework moves away from a disease-specific approach and provides national direction applicable to a broad range of chronic conditions by recognising that there are often similar underlying principles for the prevention and management of many chronic conditions. The Framework will better cater for shared health determinants, risk factors and multi-morbidities across a broad range of chronic conditions.

The Framework was endorsed by all Health Ministers, through the COAG Health Council, in February 2017 and publicly released in May 2017. View the Framework
