- National primary prevention report #4

Evidence shows that primary prevention work will be most effective if it is done in collaboration to ensure different efforts are consistent and mutually reinforcing.
The Hub will support information-sharing, enable connection and collaboration, and facilitate coordination among organisations designing and delivering primary prevention policies, programs and campaigns.
As part of the Hub, Our Watch will host a series of forums for those working in the sector, publish four national reports to identify key activities and opportunities, and convene a Hub Stakeholder Group, bringing together sector leaders from across the country.
