    This report titled: Strengthening Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy: Lessons from a case study of food and nutrition is a PhD research project. The research was focused on trying to find the answers to the following three questions:


    1. How, and to what extent, has food and nutrition featured as a priority on the national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy agenda over the period 1996-2015, and how has this changed over time?


    2. What were the key factors influencing the prioritisation of food and nutrition in national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy during the period 1996-2015?


    3. How have different stakeholders been perceived to influence (or failed to influence) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy during the period 1996-2015?


    The research was conducted by Jennifer Browne from the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation.
