The Summary of nutrition among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is a plain language publication that provides summarised and update information from the two reviews published by the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet in 2018:

  • Review of nutrition among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 
  • Review of programs and services to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nutrition and food security.

  • factors contributing to nutrition
  • nutrition during pregnancy, and among children and adults
  • food security
  • nutrition programs and services
  • the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nutrition workforce
  • related government policies and strategies.
