Description

For thirty years, researchers at the Menzies School of Health research have been tracking the health of babies born to Aboriginal mothers at Royal Darwin Hospital between 1987 and 1990.

Remarkably, researchers have been able to maintain the database of almost all 689 mothers in the original Aboriginal Birth Cohort.

The longest running cohort study of aboriginal health will be continued thanks to $12 million dollar cash injection by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
