The Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health and Families has worked with partners in the non-government, private and Aboriginal health sectors and consulted widely with other stakeholders to develop the Strategy. It aims to improve the health and well being of all Territorians by reducing the incidence and impact of chronic conditions. Key evidence based strategies have been identified and form the framework for building and strengthening a system-wide response to prevent and reduce the impact of chronic conditions for all people in the NT, across the continuum of care and across the lifespan. The strategy focuses on Cardiovascular disease, Rheumatic heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, Chronic airways disease, Chronic kidney disease, Chronic mental illness and some cancers (associated with common risk factors for other chronic conditions).

|An evaluation of the NT Preventable Chronic Disease Strategy||2007|
The Northern Territory Preventable Chronic Disease Strategy was launched in 1999. It was a strategic attempt to bring about change in the prevention, early detection, and management of chronic diseases in the NT, and at all levels of the health care system. Consulting Pty Ltd was commissioned to complete the evaluation of the NTPCDS. The methodology included undertaking focus group interviews, sourcing information and data identified in the gap analysis, collating and analysing materials and finalising a report with recommendations.
Evidence drawn from a collective review of the national and international literature over a three year period specifically for the purpose of informing 1999 Strategy development.
This document provides an overview of the NT Preventable Chronic Diseases Strategy. This document will be useful in defining a progressive implementation agenda for the PCDS, and framing the implementation plans.
