Initiatives and programs
We're working on a range of policy initiatives, programs and campaigns to help improve your health and the health of all Australians.
The Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) program aims to improve life expectancy among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by reducing tobacco use. Local organisations run activities designed to reduce smoking rates. Resources and tools are available to support these activities.
The Clinical Trials Activity initiative helps Australian researchers and patients test new treatments through national and international clinical trials.
Targeted Translation Research Accelerator has been consolidated into the Preventive and Public Health Research initiative under the MRFF 10-year plan.
The Cardiovascular Health Mission will invest $220 million over 10 years to bring together researchers, health professionals, industry and patients to make transformative improvements in heart and vascular health and stroke for all Australians.
