Aboriginal Birth Cohort Study is an Indigenous
health project tracing the health of over 600
Aboriginal people from birth. The "Clan Cohort",
as these study participants are now known, are
spread right across the Top End and beyond.
are hoping to reveal a window of opportunity
in childhood to prevent the development
of chronic disease in later life. Kidney
disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease
are examples of chronic diseases.
