The Alberta Policy Coalition for Chronic Disease Prevention (formerly the Alberta Policy Coalition for Cancer Prevention) was originally funded in 2009 by the Alberta Cancer Prevention Legacy Fund (Alberta Health Services). The APCCP represents a broad range of practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and community organizations who have come together to coordinate efforts, generate evidence and advocate for policy change in order to reduce chronic disease in Alberta.
Funding for the APCCP in 2011-2013 is provided by the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The APCCP is composed of fifteen member organizations who work together in advocating for healthy policy changes for a healthier Alberta. Our efforts are supported by a research committee.
We are committed to promoting and facilitating evidence-based policies in Albertan communities, schools and workplaces for:
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity
- Alcohol Related Harm
- Tobacco Reduction
- Increasing the capacity of policy makers and decision makers in Alberta to use policy as a strategy for cancer and chronic disease prevention
- Providing leadership in the development, implementation and evaluation of policy related activities for cancer and chronic disease prevention
- Facilitating practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and community organizations from various sectors working together to enhance public acceptance of policy-related activities
