His research program focuses on how to reduce chronic disease risk and how to improve health care delivery and chronic disease self-management for people with chronic conditions.

His research outputs have been widely adapted and tailored to the needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable populations, including Indigenous Australians.

His research program is very active in India, China and other countries in Asia and Sub-Sahara Africa. He is very well networked with program implementers, public health researchers and policy-makers throughout South Asia and China. He has undertaken recent work for WHO related to NCDs in developing countries, for example, he was the senior author of a WHO monograph, “A practical guide for implementation research to improve the prevention & control of NCDs”. He has almost 300 peer reviewed papers and has presented at over 65 conferences in the last 5 years, including many invited plenaries at international conferences. He is the co-chair of the Prevention Group for the Lancet Commission on Policy and System Approaches to Reduce the Global Burden of Diabetes-related Morbidity. Professor Oldenburg currently also serves on International Advisory Boards for research trials being undertaken in China, South Asian countries and Finland. He has led the establishment of the Implementation Science Training Program for the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases and has delivered training programs in more than 10 countries over the last 5 years.
