Improving pre-pregnancy health and pregnancy outcomes in north Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

 

Overview

The key aim of this research project is to identify opportunities and time-points for effective primary, secondary and tertiary interventions to improve health in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women of childbearing age and their infants in north Queensland communities.

The research project will seek to establish sustainable processes to conduct surveillance and epidemiological research to determine protective maternal characteristics, and to monitor the impact of potentially preventable risk conditions on pregnancy and birth outcomes.

An additional component of the program is to rigorously evaluate outcomes of complex interventions restricting the supply of alcohol in Cape York which may have powerful short and long-term impacts on the health of women of childbearing age and their infants.
