First 1000 Days Australia has partnered with Indigenous groups to look at the possibility of adapting the Australian Model for their populations and needs.

The goal of this project was to explore strategies in which an Indonesian Model of the First 1000 Days could prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the tribal and Indigenous communities of Australia and Indonesia. The collaboration was supported by the Australia–Indonesia Centre and included researchers from Universitas Indonesia, PrimaInstitut Pertanian Bogor, the University of Melbourne, Monash University and the University of Sydney.

This project explored engagement strategies in which an Arctic Model of the First 1000 Days could be adapted for Sami communities in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. This collaboration was supported by researchers from the University of Tromsø, Norway and the University of Melbourne.
