Hume Region – Closing the Health Gap

Young Women's Health Project: Final outcome resource kits

Using a community engagement model, the project's two Community Engagement Workers and the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women from Central and Lower Hume decided to contribute family recipes to a cook book.

They met and, together with Aboriginal Health workers, had three separate days of sharing food, laughter and life stories as they prepared and ate their favourite meals. This activity formed the basis of the material you will find in the Young Women’s Health Project Cook Book.

The book has been made available to the women and their families as well as providing mainstream health and education services a best practice example of increasing health literacy through engagement strategies.

The Young Women’s Health Project Infograph, is an interactive tool that leads the curious worker through a series of questions to assist their understanding of the needs of their Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander client, or colleague, and directs them to extensive resources available across the Victorian health, education, justice, community and housing sectors. the Infograph is available as a PDF and can be printed or downloaded for distribution through the service networks.
