Brief description Adult literacy and Aboriginal community well-being in western NSW. Adult literacy and Aboriginal community well-being in western NSW. This project aims to examine the effect of an adult literacy campaign on Aboriginal communities in New South Wales. Since 2012, four western NSW Aboriginal communities have implemented a Cuban-designed mass campaign model to address very low levels of adult literacy. Over 100 people will have achieved basic literacy by July 2016, and four more communities will join by 2019. This project will use a social determinants of health framework to analyse quantitative and qualitative data collected at an individual and population level. This research is expected to improve understanding of the link between Aboriginal adult literacy and health.
