The Australian Government is investing in research to improve the opportunity for health intervention in the time between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s fifth birthday.
What we’re funding

This program will support research that specifically tackles that window of health intervention opportunity that occurs between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s fifth birthday.
Why it’s important
- The first 2000 days of a child’s life provides a unique opportunity to shape a healthier and more prosperous future.
