About the initiative
We set up the Maternal Health and First 2000 Days/Women’s Health initiative to support the:
- mother’s health during pregnancy
- child’s health during their first 2000 days (5 years) of life.
This research activity continues as part of the Preventive and Public Health Research initiative.
Why it is important
The first 2000 days of a child’s life is a unique opportunity to shape a healthier future for them. We will support research into health interventions that can give Australian children the best start in life.
We will now address this initiative’s priorities through Preventive and Public Health Research.
