RWAV is running a nutrition program with 7 pilots sites across the state supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people, families and elders.
These projects are part of the larger Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease Program, aiming to increase access to a range of health services including expanded primary health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the treatment and management of all chronic disease.
The aim of the Nutrition pilots are to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in making positive lifestyle changes through education, peer support and upskilling.
RWAV will work with a number of organisations across the state to pilot different nutrition projects that meet local needs and the above objectives. An evaluation framework will form part of each nutrition project, with the projects completed by June 2017.
