Abstract

Dympna Leonard studied anaemia among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and mothers in Far North Queensland. She identified high rates of anaemia in the first thousand days of life - in pregnancy and early childhood - associated with developmental disadvantage at school-age. Health services are now considering options for anaemia prevention.
