Getting Australia's Health on Track 2016 is the subsequent policy report to the chronic disease report card Australia's Health Tracker 2016. Both were compiled by a national collaboration of Australia's leading chronic disease experts.
This report documents the targets and indications that can support, guide and track progress towards a substantial change in the health of Australia. The work comes for a national coalition through the operations of seven working groups and other supporting organisations.
