Reducing the Risk of SUDI in Aboriginal Communities

Reducing the Risk of SUDI (Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy) in Aboriginal Communities (RROSIAC) program seeks to reduce the unacceptably high rate of Aboriginal infants dying of SIDS and fatal sleep accidents. The program has been successfully operating throughout WA since 2005.
