Abstract

Improving health outcomes for Indigenous people of Australia has become a key priority for health services and organisations since the launch of the Close the Gap campaign in 2006. In an effort to reduce the early origins of chronic disease, researchers from the University of Newcastle commenced a study in 2007 to understand health issues that affected pregnancy outcomes for Aboriginal women.
