Report available now: Best Start To Life: a national gathering



Jointly hosted by the Molly Wardaguga Research Centre, Charles Darwin University (CDU) and the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress (Congress), the Best Start to Life (BSTL) gathering was held at the Alice Springs Convention Centre from 10 to 12 October 2022, Mparntwe. BSTL showcased innovative, translational research, and leading practice changes from around

the country, attracting significant national interest







The Best Start to Life gathering was a tremendous success. In the words of our delegates, it was inspiring, brilliant, powerful, or quite simply “the best conference I’ve ever attended!” A significant part of this result were the eminent keynote speakers including Commissioner June Oscar AO and Senator the Hon. Malarndirri McCarthy who spoke about the best start to life as a universal right for all women and families.
