Prevention 1st comments on the Australian Labor Party’s National Platform Consultation Draft

The Foundation for Alcohol Research for Education (FARE) and the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) provided a submission with comments on the Australian Labor Party’s National Platform Consultation Draft. The comments provided relate to sections within the National Platform consultation draft concerning chronic disease and preventive health.

In order to reduce the burden that chronic disease has on Australia’s health system, there is a clear need for a revitalised focus on preventive health. The suggested amendments in this document provide the opportunity to reposition preventive health and reduce the burden of chronic disease in Australia.

The titles and sections used in this document are the same as they appear in the National Platform Consultation Draft for ease of reference, and should be read in conjunction with that document.

FARE supports policy reforms that contribute to a reduction in alcohol-related harms in Australia. Our policy work is informed by the evidence of what is most effective in reducing alcohol-related harms. We support the progression of population-based health measures, which take into consideration the far reaching and complex impacts of alcohol-related harms.
