The SALSA Project received funding from the Australian Government Department of Health in 2013. This enabled an incredibly productive and successful era for the SALSA program. We achieved good fidelity of implementation and excellent evaluation retention rates throughout the SALSA evaluation, working in partnerships with high schools.

Twenty-three high schools in western Sydney received the SALSA program in 2014 and 2015. The program had a significant impact on improving the dietary behaviours of students and provided an important nudge to alter the often declining health-related behaviours of adolescents.
