Abstract: This document briefly reports on a forum held in Melbourne on 25 November 2015, hosted by the Australian Health Policy Collaboration (AHPC). The forum was informed by a technical paper, Targets and indicators for chronic disease prevention in Australia, (McNamara et al 2015). The technical paper was developed through a working group process auspiced by AHPC. The forum program focused initially on the technical paper, and then on development of a prevention scorecard. Attendees (invited health experts from the academic, not-for-profit and public sector) supported development of a scorecard, with different versions proposed for different audiences. Later in the day, participants discussed what success for chronic disease prevention would look like in twelve months' time (that is, in November 2016).
