Abstract

Good Food for New Arrivals is a nutrition program that aims to improve the knowledge and skills related to health and nutrition amongst newly arrived refugees to Perth, Western Australia. This paper provides background on the program and the community participatory approach used to understand nutrition issues for refugees and the subsequent development of appropriate resources. Good Food for New Arrivals is an example of a successful health initiative that develops health information while at the same time facilitating social inclusion and the maintenance of cultural integrity.
