Exploring potential impacts of family empowerment and NCD prevention strategies on achieving early life equity

This project will develop a regional initiatives report based on two workshops to articulate how empowerment and prevention strategies are used to achieve early life equity in Indigenous and Tribal populations in Australia and Indonesia. Internationally, the thousand days from conception to age two is established as a critical period of time in which to address preventable deaths, ensure health and wellbeing and expand enabling environments. This project will facilitate shared understandings, identify key action areas and investments to galvanize commitment, advocacy and knowledge exchange to significantly advance national and international health and wellbeing goals for populations experiencing vulnerability.
