Nutrition and Food Security in Remote South Australian Aboriginal Communities Project
The Centre for Health Promotion received funding from the Rural Health Support Education and Training fund of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Aged Care from 2002-2005. The purpose of this work was to:
- increase regional nutritionists' capacity to support health and education workers in far remote SA Aboriginal communities in the Northern and Far Western and Upper Eyre health regions;
- increase community health and education workers' nutrition knowledge and confidence to provide food preparation sessions to children and families;
- increase community awareness of demand for healthy food; and
- increase retailer and community awareness of food cost and what can be done about it in remote communities.
