Summary "A strong start to life lays the foundation for a healthy future. Embedded health problems, poorer access to health care, and socio-economic disadvantage can lead to poor outcomes for Aboriginal mothers and babies. Some of the enormous health and well-being problems faced by Aboriginal communities are being successfully ameliorated by the communities themselves through participative and community-based initiatives. This program offers models and ideas for communities on what can work for them in the area of Aboriginal maternal and infant care, and how some communities are managing these problems. This documentary highlights initiatives of the Strong Women Strong Babies, Strong Culture Program; Daruk Aboriginal Medical Services; Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women's Council Nutrition Program, Townsville Aboriginal and Islander Health Service (TAIHS) and Alukura Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Inc."
