Reducing the Risk of SUDI in Aboriginal Communities

 

Overview

The Reducing The Risk of SUDI (Sudden unexpected death in infancy) in Aboriginal Communities (RROSIAC) program seeks to reduce the unacceptably high risk of Aboriginal infants dying of Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and sleep accidents. The program has been successfully operating throughout Western Australia since 2005.

SIDS and Kids Western Australia offer this Aboriginal specific safe sleeping program designed to educated families about SIDS and SUDI. Education is tailored to raise awareness of infant mortality and to explain the sleeping recommendations with a strong focus on prevention of SIDS and SUDI.

This training also includes information on minimising harm caused by smoking tobacco.
