Abstract: The WA Aboriginal Child Health Survey is the largest and most comprehensive study of Aboriginal child health and development in Australia. The Telethon Institute for Child Health Research (TICHR) with the support and advice of the WA Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (WAACHO), the WA Council of ATSIC Commissioners, and the WA Council of Elders, has now completed the state-wide survey of Aboriginal children and families to assist us to improve our understanding of what children and young people need to develop in healthy ways. Data has been collected through a household and school survey primarily, with young people between the ages of 12-17 also completing an individual survey.
