10 out of 10 deadly health stories: nutrition and physical activity.

Surry Hills, NSW: Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW

The 10 out of 10 deadly health stories - nutrition and physical activity booklet presents 10 successful nutrition and physical activity programs from New South Wales (NSW) Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs). Programs ranged from cooking classes (Cooking Classes for Diabetes Program) and teaching of life skills (Healthy Lifestyle and Weight Management Program), to community based activities (Fruit and Vegetable Program and Market Garden and Building Healthy Communities Project). Despite the diversity in health topics they all shared several features, namely all were developed and tailored to meet needs identified by the Aboriginal communities in which the ACCHSs are located, and all have taken a 'holistic' approach.

The booklet was developed, produced and distributed by the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council (AHMRC) of NSW and funding was provided by the Australian Department of Health and Ageing.
