Kia ora,
Welcome to 2022, we hope you had a wonderful, restful break and spent time with whānau and friends.

The team at A Better Start is back on deck, and our researchers are full steam ahead working on our six major health research projects (focused on sleep interventions, early learning and literacy, mental health and resilience, and healthy weight), as well as 12 contestable projects with our co-funders Cure Kids, which we announced last year.

We’ll be sharing updates on all of these projects with you throughout 2022.

Stay tuned for the announcement of our major new Pasifika research project this month too!

We look forward to working with all of our collaborators, stakeholders, communities and families who have supported our work to improve the lives of our tamariki.

Ngā mihi
Wayne Cutfield, A Better Start Director
