Published:October 07, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.wombi.2022.10.001
      In October 2022, First Nations community representatives, researchers, health service providers, policy advisors and clinicians will travel to Mparntwe, (pronounced mm-BARN-doo-uh), Alice Springs, for a national gathering on Central Arrernte land. The gathering provides an opportunity for delegates from across Australia to showcase exemplary models of care, to share new research and ideas, and to network and invest in a shared vision to address inequities in maternal and infant health services and outcomes for First Nations mothers and babies. Health services will showcase how they have redesigned and delivered their care to make a profound impact on Closing the Gap Target 2: First Nations children are born healthy and strong.
