Background: There is considerable theoretical appeal and investment in intersectoral partnerships for chronic disease prevention, yet there is limited understanding of pathways for creating collaborative value.

Objectives: The purpose of this paper was to discuss the Collaborative Value Creation Framework in terms of its potential to understand how value is created in prevention partnerships.

Results: The framework holds promise for a) studying the significance of all types of collaborative value and in what contexts, b) examining how sources of collaborative value can be enhanced, c) surfacing how mindsets advance or hinder collaborative efforts, and d) establishing interdependent links with and between other elements of the framework such as collaborative processes, stages, and outcomes to increase value creation potential.

Conclusions: Mapping the interdependence of all elements would be an innovation to the application of the framework to discover leverage points to increase collaborative value and strengthen prevention partnerships.
