Aboriginal Health Research Agenda for Primary Health Care/Community Health

Michael Bentley

In 2007, SACHRU has been working with Muna Paiendi Primary Health Care Service on the process and impact evaluation of the Deadly Nungas Say No To Puiya tobacco control project. The project, funded over three years, aims to:

  1. Move the tobacco control activities of Central Northern Adelaide Health Service’s Primary Health Care Services (CNPHCS) - North beyond traditional best practice for health services and pilot new innovative strategies that focus on the social determinants of smoking, and
  2. Create a strong evidence based tobacco control ‘foundation’ at CNPHCS (North) by developing best practice policy and increasing broad population and staff knowledge and advocacy around the harms of tobacco.

SACHRU has developed a program logic model to describe the activities and implementation of the project.
