Abstract

Health promotion is important for managing chronic illness and increasing wellbeing, but we know little about how Aboriginal organisations design and run health promotion activities. This project looks at the aims and strategies of Aboriginal health promotion; what things assist or prevent organisations from running health promotion programs; and evaluates whether establishing an Alliance of community organisations helps with implementing health promotion and increases its effectiveness.
