The Information and action for Aboriginal heart health (also known as BAHHWA) project will analyse detailed epidemiological, service utilisation and costing information on a range of heart and associated chronic diseases among Aboriginal Western Australians. This project will also engage regional Western Australian Aboriginal planning forums, policy makers, health service managers and funders. Stakeholder understanding of the evidence and their response will be investigated with the aim of facilitating changes that improve Aboriginal heart health.
This project will be undertaken by the Western Australian Centre for Rural Health (WACRH) and is funded by grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council.
