Suitability of the WHO 25 x 25 chronic disease targets and indicators for Australia

7 Aug 2015
Description

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of NCDs 2013‐2020 aims to reduce the burden of non‐communicable diseases by 2025, through action on nine targets measured by 25 indicators of performance. While the WHO 25 x 25 targets were cited as a key set of measures for Australia to assess and improve the health of the population, they must be tailored to the Australian context.

This paper reviews the nationally available data relevant to the WHO 25 x 25 targets and indicators, identifying any gaps that exist. This report will be used to provoke discussion and inform the development of targets and indicators, based on the WHO model, but tailored to Australia’s population health needs.
