FoundationThe Foundation for Chronic Disease Prevention (FCDP) was established to help reduce the prevalence of heart disease, Type II diabetes and other chronic lifestyle related diseases through research, education and health promotion activities. Based on the rising rate of these illnesses, society is faced with an enormous health and financial burden. As part of a solution to this looming crisis, FCDP conducts vital evidence-based research into chronic disease prevention, with a particular focus on prevention within the workplace.


Diabetes, Heart failure

FCDP is the research arm of Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) - a low impact, pedometer-based, workplace intervention program that encourages increased activity. FCDP was established to work in partnership with universities to provide relevant bodies (governments and businesses) with proven outcomes on the use of evidence based prevention strategies in the workplace.

FCDP works in partnership with some of the world's foremost independent research institutes in this area, including: Lancaster University – UK (Centre for Organisational Health and Wellbeing) and Monash University – Australia (Department of Epidemiology and Preventative Medicine).

Together we provide cutting edge, independent, evidence based research in workplace interventions that encourage a more active lifestyle that assists in reversing the chronic disease epidemic.
