The Aboriginal health promotion and chronic care partnership (AHPACC) initiative supports Aboriginal community-controlled health organisations (ACCHOs) and community health services to work in partnership to develop and deliver local services and programs that prevent and manage the high prevalence of chronic disease within Indigenous communities in Victoria.
Organisations receive ongoing (recurrent) funding to deliver AHPACC as partnerships or consortia. The way in which AHPACC is implemented is dependent on local planning and community needs. There are six funded activity types for the AHPACC:
A developmental review in 2010-11 found that the AHPACC initiative has made some significant achievements in the areas of service innovation, community engagement, inter sectoral collaboration and organisational change for cultural responsiveness. The findings indicate that the AHPACC is contributing to improving the length and quality of life for Aboriginal Victorians.
As part of the project the Aboriginal health promotion and chronic care partnership (AHPACC) continuous quality improvement (CQI) tool was developed to assist Victorian organisations participating in the AHPACC initiative.

The report specified seven strategic directions that aimed to strengthen the program and inform broader policy and program development during 2011-2014.
