Impact of a price discount on food spending and cardiovascular health in remote Aboriginal Australia

 

Overview

This research project aims to provide evidence for the impact of food price discounts on nutrition and cardiovascular health improvement in remote Indigenous Australian communities.

The project will trial the effect of a 20 per cent price discount on food, with and without an in-store nutrition education strategy, on fruit and vegetables, water and diet drink purchasing in stores in remote Indigenous Australian communities.

Twenty remote Indigenous Australian communities will be involved and they are to be matched by size and remoteness. The effect of the intervention on community level cardiovascular health will be examined using routinely collected clinic data.
