Prevention initiatives

COORDINARE's approach to prevention focuses on promoting health and preventing illness, and detecting and treating the early signs of diseases. This can make a real difference to the long term health outcomes for local residents.

Our prevention initiatives are organised and systematic responses that take into account the social determinants of health. Read our Prevention initiatives statement for more information. 

In South Eastern NSW, a greater focus on cancer screening is needed to combat the region's higher-than-average premature mortality rates (compared to the NSW and Australia-wide averages). COORDINARE also works with primary health care providers to maintain and increase our region's immunisation coverage rates.
