Process evaluation of a community-based adolescent obesity prevention project in Tonga


A 3 year community based study titled the Ma’alahi Youth Project (MYP) conducted in Tonga from 2005-2008 aimed to increase the capacity of the whole community (schools, churches, parents and adolescents) to promote healthy eating and regular physical activity and to reduce the prevalence of overweight and obesity amongst youth and their families. This paper describes the process evaluation for MYP, against a set of Best Practice Principles for community-based obesity prevention.
