The 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s 2nd birthday offer a unique window of opportunity to shape healthier and more prosperous futures. The First 1,000 Days program aims to reduce vulnerabilities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families and promote the development of a competent workforce across different jurisdictions nationally and internationally. This is locally relevant and nationally significant research, capable of influencing Australian and international agendas in Indigenous health and wellbeing.
