This dedicated portal provides access to evidence-based eating disorders information and tools needed to support Primary Health Networks (PHNs) activities and the communities they serve.

NEDC recognises the challenges for PHNs in facilitating an effective, integrated primary health care system which addresses both local health care needs and the national priorities determined by the Australian Government. Find out more about NEDC's purpose and work with PHNs here.
