Chronic Conditions program

The Chronic Conditions Program was one of five programs of the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health (2003–2009)

Program goal

The goal is to improve chronic conditions prevention, early detection and management services and strategies to reduce the impact of chronic conditions in Indigenous communities.

Program overview

The Chronic Conditions program will focus on diabetes and cardiovascular and renal disease but takes a holistic approach to health and is closely linked to other CRC for Aboriginal Health research programs. The program will use an integrated approach to bring together community, industry and research stakeholders to share ideas, questions, skills and resources; to incorporate research-transfer activities; and to support capacity development at the community level, as well as among the workforce and in the research world.
