Investigation of a Food Price Subsidisation Scheme for the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands

    Project: Other

    Description

    This project develops a model for the government subsidisation of health and food items provided through community stores situated on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands located far northwest SA. The project targets the research needs of the industry partner- the Nganampa Health Council- as it provides essential input into the Mai Wiru Regional Stores Policy. This policy aims to improve the nutritional and health status of Anangu Pitjantjatjara by enabling the Anangu to purchase appropriate items at affordable prices. The project is academically innovative in its application of economic tools to a distinctive social situation. The model could be used as a pilot for this type of public policy leading to the more widespread implementation into other indigenous and non-indigenous 'impoverished' Australian communities.
