Brief description Aboriginal babies across the Top End of the Northern Territory have been followed up for over 25 years as part of the Aboriginal Birth Cohort Study. The aim of this study is to relate early life events, beginning in the womb, to later physical and mental health. This will identify early those most at risk of developing chronic diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular, renal and mental health) that contribute to the current gap in life expectancy between Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal Australians, and help develop intervention strategies.
