The factors most likely to impact on human growth and development and learning are well understood across populations, including the long reach of early childhood experiences and their interplay on adult health and socioeconomic outcomes. The effectiveness of interventions to address risk factors and promote protective factors is also well understood, in particular contexts with particular populations. So what do we mean by ‘success in the early years for remote Indigenous children?’ How is it measured? And what do we really know about the context of remote communities and the population of remote Indigenous children? The work of Menzies School of Health Research and many other organisations has helped to develop much clearer understandings of these questions in the interest of more thoroughly understanding how particular interventions can make a difference to specific outcomes in certain contexts. This presentation aims to highlight key distinctions about working in remote Indigenous contexts and the key lessons from a number of interventions that will enhance success for remote Indigenous children.
