The Primary prevention project was a collaborative project funded by Queensland Health as part of the Australian Better Health Initiative, situated with the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council's (QAIHC) Population Health Hub (PHH).
The Primary prevention project aimed to build effective, multidisciplinary primary prevention capacity within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Health Service sector by developing, implementing and evaluating a model of primary prevention (nutrition and physical activity) that sustainably builds capacity of local and regional community controlled service delivery. Subsequently, the Primary Prevention project aimed to contribute to the evidence base underpinning primary prevention activity amongst urban Indigenous populations.
The Primary prevention project informed the development of the Preventative Health Unit, which coordinates the development and implementation of strategies and programs oriented around the areas of: population and preventative health; access to primary health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons; building partnerships and linkages; evaluation and monitoring; quality improvement; and data management and surveillance.
