Show close time for other time zones
The Australian Nurse-Family Partnership Program (ANFPP) is part of the Indigenous Australians’ Health Programme (IAHP). This is a targeted non-competitive opportunity to allow organisations that are currently implementing the ANFPP to apply for a further three years of program funding to 2021-22.
The ANFPP aims to improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices; supporting parents to improve their child’s health and development; and helping parents develop a vision for their own future, including continuing education and finding work. The ANFPP is a nurse led home visiting program provided by the same Nurse Home Visitor for the duration of a client’s involvement or until the child reaches two years of age. The ANFPP is a highly structured, evidence-based program modelled on the international Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP).
The ANFPP is a part of the Australian government’s commitment to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People with the ANFPP providing valuable support and sharing information with mothers to promote their baby’s development in their early years.
To be eligible to apply you must be an organisation listed in Section 3.1 of the Grant Opportunity Guidelines.
