NEDC - National Eating Disorders Collaboration

The National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) is an initiative of the federal Department of Health and Ageing. It's a collaboration of people and organisations with an expertise or interest in eating disorders.

NEDC aims to improve the health outcomes of people with, or at risk of developing, an eating disorder in Australia, recognising the need to take a long term approach to promotion, prevention and early intervention for eating disorders.

Their vision is that:

  • eating disorders are a priority mainstream health issue in Australia
  • a healthy, diverse and inclusive Australian society acts to prevent eating disorders
  • every Australian at risk has access to an effective continuum of eating disorders prevention, care and ongoing recovery support

The NEDC website brings research, expertise and opinion from leaders in the field together in one place. It’s a one-stop portal to make eating disorder information more accessible for everyone.
