National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nutrition Strategy and Action Plan 2000-2010 (NATSINSAP)

 

Overview

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nutrition Strategy and Action Plan 2000-2010 (NATSINSAP) was a nationally agreed framework for action to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health through better nutrition.

It was developed by the National Public Health Partnership (NPHP) as a component of Eat Well Australia: An agenda for Action in Public Health Nutrition, 2000-2010 and endorsed by all Australian health ministers in August 2001.

The primary action areas in NATSINSAP aimed to improve the nutritional health of Indigenous Australians through beginning to address the many social, economic, geographical, environmental and infrastructure issues and factors which influence food choices and nutrition in Indigenous communities. NATSINSAP identified seven priority action areas:

Between 2004 and June 2010, a NATSINSAP project officer was employed to assist national coordination and collaboration in three main action areas: food supply in rural and remote communities; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nutrition workforce; and communicating and disseminating good practice. Other action areas that have had some exploration are nutrition issues in urban areas and family focused maternal and child nutrition.

NATSINSAP achievements include the following:
