2017/18 KNOCKOUT HEALTH CHALLENGE
Thank you to all communities, partners and stakeholders that have participated in 2017/18. It is through your support in growing and strengthening the Knockout Health Challenge we can continue to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous health outcomes.
We received great results in 2017 with over 1,200 Aboriginal adults participating from across the state in the Challenge with an average weight loss of 2.1% per person achieved across the year.
We have also heard from our participants and communities about how the Challenge made a positive impact on their health, making them feel more deadly, eat healthier foods and help reverse the effects of lifestyle related chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes.
It is the small steps that we take today that add up to make a big difference to leading a healthy lifestyle and knockout chronic diseases in our communities.
