Comments

Important suggestion however, need to have plain messages that do not lose important information rather than 'simple' messages. The messages need to be created collaboratively with Aboriginal language interpreters so that terms are meaningful.

Agree with the above comment. Being truthful and not dumbing down information is critical, along with letting this be driven and informed by the community. I would like to acknowledge that there are a number of communities which have some great resources, maybe the youth workers and the Indigenous Hip Hop program can also be more engaged so that a more collaborative approach occurs between health, education, youth work, community and others
