    Abstract

    Between 1985 and 1992 County Kilkenny was the site of an evaluated community intervention project which aimed to reduce the population's heart disease burden by promoting the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. One form taken by this intervention was work within primary and second level schools as well as with community groups and adult education providers. This paper analyses data collected in the project’s termination survey on the direct awareness impact on adult respondents of interventions undertaken in collaboration with community groups and/or adult education providers. It also examines the indirect awareness impact on adult respondents of the project’s school-based activities The findings are discussed in the light of the set of national health strategy statements published by the Department of Health after the completion of the Kilkenny project.
