Low birth weight in Papua New Guinea is a killer. Help us research what is causing low birth weight in PNG so that we can stop it.
In 2019, Burnet Institute received funding from Wyndham City Council to explore alcohol and other drug use among culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Wyndham.
This project will include interviews and focus group discussions with key stakeholders and young people and parents who live, work or hang out in Wyndham and identify as being from a migrant background.
Results will be used to inform the development of appropriate prevention, harm reduction and treatment responses in the area.
