Pepi-pod program

 

Overview

The Pepi-pod program aims to reduce the risk of sudden unexpected death in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander babies. The research program is examining the potential benefits of a portable infant sleep space called the Pepi-pod. It is being trialled across five sites in Queensland and is a preventive health initiative for safer sleep environments.

The Pepi-pod program has three components:

The program is funded by the two grants, the Closing the gap: national partnership agreement on Indigenous early childhood development and the Infront outback rrants for novice researchers. The project is also supported by SIDS and Kids and the Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian.
