NEDC was tasked by its members and by eating disorder sector leaders to develop a National Eating Disorders Strategy 2023-2033 to guide sector development and policy decision-making for the next decade.

The development of the National Strategy was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care. 

NEDC engaged in extensive national consultations with stakeholders to identify what is required to build and embed a system of care that meets the needs of people experiencing or at risk of eating disorders, and their families/supports and communities.

The different types of expertise shared, including lived experience, clinical, and research expertise, provided the foundation for the development of the National Strategy.
