Poor nutrition is linked to the poor health status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians living in remote communities. Affordability of food is a key driver in food choice. There is mounting evidence for the use of pricing strategies to improve the nutritional quality of foods purchased in remote community stores. A Framework to Inform Food-related Policy in Remote Indigenous Communities aims to understand the role of evidence and expert opinion in contributing to the development of policy about remote food supply.
This project commenced in 2012 and is planned to be completed in 2016.
