This prospective desk-based Equity Focused Health Impact Assessment (EFHIA) aims to examine the equity issues relating to Marang Dhali Eating Well (MDEW). MDEW is a locally designed Aboriginal food and cooking program to improve food security in four Aboriginal communities within the Western New South Wales Local Health District (Western NSW LHD). This EFHIA makes predictions about the potential health impacts of MDEW and recommendations to maximise health gains and minimise health risks.
