The latest version of the Community Health Action Pack (CHAP) is now available online!
The CHAP is all about health promotion and can be used by anyone who wants to run a project to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and community workers; health professionals; and Elders, community leaders and community organisations.
The pack is a practical and flexible resource that can adapted by communities and organisations to suit their own needs and contains templates, examples, checklists and tips to help with planning a health promotion project.
You’ll find advice on planning health promotion projects and a bunch of ideas to help you plan and implement different activities. There are also a range of health promotion resources, like fact sheets and posters, and a set of project planning and implementation templates that will give you the tools you need to plan your community event.
We’ve also provided some inspiration, with case studies showing how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are achieving great success through implementing local health promotion projects. We hope these may give other communities and organisations ideas to help close the gap on life expectancy between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people(s) and other Australians.
We’d love to know how you’ve used the CHAP in your health promotion activity… join the conversation on Twitter!
