Fostering Healthy Diets in Remote Communities

Monash University is a member of the Coalition for Healthy Remote Stores, an alliance of retail, health and academic organisations that works to improve the healthiness of food retail stores in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Following the release of the 2022 Food Policy Index, which assesses Australian governments on their policies for addressing unhealthy diets, the Coalition for Healthy Remote Stores issued a joint statement recommending a series of actions by Australian and Northern Territory governments to foster healthy food retail in remote communities, where work is needed to improve community health and manage preventable chronic disease.
