  • 11 February 2016

    Hi WAIHPH members,


    Many thanks to all who have take the time to complete the PAMSWA post evaluative survey on preventing Aboriginal maternal smoking in WA, which will remain open unti 19 February 2016. If you work with pregnant Aboriginal women who smoke, in WA and haven't already had the chance to complete this short survey (approx 12 minutes) please consider doing, so as your valuable input will support the quest for future funding for this important project. You can take the survey here.


    Kind regards
    Trish O'Hara


    WAIHPN Coordinator
