Abstract

The aim of this research was to contribute to the development of chronic disease prevention strategies for Indigenous people. There were 82 Indigenous people involved in a survey, who were residing in Melbourne's western suburbs. The results of this study show that Indigenous people have differing experiences and preferences for types of support to improve healthy lifestyles.
