Abstract This paper examines some Indigenous communities that have successfully sustained community based environmental health programs with noticeable improvements in the physical environment and peoples health. The author discusses issues and strategies that appear to have impacted positively or negatively on the environmental health of the communities. Ingredients for effective delivery of environmental health programs include strong leadership; past history of successful participation in health programs; being able to overcome negativity; using appropriate processes; and using preferred Aboriginal learning styles.
