The Health and Wellbeing Strategic Framework 2017 to 2026 sets a prevention-focused pathway for achieving improved health for all Queenslanders.
An important aim of any health system is to prevent disease and reduce illness so that people live long, healthy lives. Healthy behaviours such as not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active and healthy food and drink choices reduce the risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some cancers. Lifestyle-related chronic diseases are preventable.
