Investing in the health of our little ones and their mum is proven to be one of the best ways to address disadvantage throughout life.
While most Queenslanders enjoy a healthy start to life, there is still a gap to close on birthing and early childhood outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
The Queensland Clinical Senate has partnered with the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health, Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council, Health Consumers Queensland and the Queensland Department of Health to deliver the Growing deadly families forums which will focus on improving the health of Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and families, through a healthier start to life.
