Indonesian newcomers control most of the commercial and economic activities and most indigenous Papuans are economically sidelined. Papua has a typical frontier economy, where very high returns can be made on small investments. The import of consumer goods has had a significant impact on nutrition, with many Papuans turning away from traditional agricultural produce to packaged noodles, oil and sugar. Proper nutrition is essential in checking the spread of HIV.
