Summary
"This report looks at ways physical activity health promotion can help prevent chronic disease in remote Indigenous communities in a culturally appropriate and sustainable way. The broader term of active living health promotion is also used as it is more inclusive of the social, cultural and environmental contexts in which lifestyle diseases and their associated behaviours are embedded. These contexts are particularly significant in a remote, Indigenous, cross-cultural setting. The report provides a qualitative exploration of Indigenous perspectives to help guide culturally appropriate physical activity promotion strategies. The research was done in consultation and collaboration with community members and service providers from the two remote Northern Territory communities involved in the project. Understanding more about cultural perceptions, meanings and experiences of how physical activity relates to health improvement in this environment can be useful in helping make health promotion more relevant, meaningful and therefore likely to be successful, for participants and service providers" [taken from summary]
