Deadly Choices



Deadly Choices in an initiative of the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH) in South East Queensland and is funded by Queensland Health.

Deadly Choices aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to make healthy choices for themselves and their families – to stop smoking, to eat good food and exercise daily. Deadly Choices also encourages our people to access their local Community-Controlled Health Service and complete an annual ‘Health Check’.

Governments have committed to ‘Closing the Gap’ in Indigenous Health but only our communities can make this happen.

Some programs include:

  • World No Tobacco Day
  • Quit Smoking
  • Deadly Smoking
  • Deadly Places Smoke-Free Spaces Competition
  • Good Quick Tukka
  • Getting Active
  • Deadly Kindies

“A Deadly Choice is a Healthy Choice”

    I thought you would like to know, it looks like you’ve misspelled the word “recieved” on your website. Silly mistakes can ruin your site’s credibility. In the past I’ve used a tool like to keep mistakes off my website.
