The healthy weight program was a weight management and healthy lifestyle program targeting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in rural remote and urban communities.
The program was developed by the Tropical Public Health Unit nutrition teams in Cairns and Townsville as a primary prevention intervention to address the high incidence of diabetes and other lifestyle diseases among North Queensland Indigenous adults. The program ran from June 2004 to June 2005.
The living strong program, based on the healthy weight program, is currently still running in Queensland.
