Healthy Starts (Te Piripohotanga)

 

Overview

The Healthy Starts Program (known as Te Piripohotanga in New Zealand) is an international randomised controlled trial of a family-centred tobacco control program delivered by Aboriginal and Maori community workers to reduce respiratory illness in Indigenous infants in Australia and New Zealand.

The project tested whether a family based program about ETS will help to reduce the number of clinic presentations of Indigenous infants for respiratory illnesses in the first 12 months of their lives.
