Abstract: A prospective longitudinal Aboriginal birth cohort was started in 1987 with the aim of examining the influences of maternal health and birth size on childhood growth, nutrition, morbidity and risk factors for chronic diseases in childhood. The rate of low birth weight for Aboriginal Australians is twice that of non-Aboriginal Australians and Aboriginal children have high rates of infectious diseases and infant malnutrition.
