Healthy lifestyles

Nearly two-thirds of all deaths in Western Australians aged under 75 could potentially be avoided. Most of these deaths are due to chronic disease and injury.

Most chronic disease and injury can be prevented by adopting a healthier lifestyle. Smoking, eating unhealthy foods, not getting enough physical activity, being overweight and harmful drinking can lead to a greater chance of developing chronic disease or getting injured.

The Chronic Disease Prevention Directorate (CDPD) develops policy and leads programs to help prevent chronic disease and injury in WA. The CDPD works with key health agencies, non-government organisations, other Government Departments, Local Government and the community to improve the health of all Western Australians.
