Brief description Over 50% of remote area Aboriginal mothers and 60% of breastfed infants have micronutrient malnutrition and other severe morbidities. A population based trial of a new locally driven model to improve the quality of maternal primary care will be undertaken. The primary outcome measure is improved iron deficiency anaemia in infants aged 6 months. The results will be used to develop improved primary care models and to improve health outcomes for all Aboriginal mothers and infants.
