What's next

• The MAP team members consider their work with each African country they are involved with a partnership. Their aim is to foster local African researchers, build capacity and empower locally driven research so that in 5–10 years this important work can be truly owned by each country

• Working with other Institute researchers, the team plans to apply geospatial modelling techniques across WA child health challenges – with aims including improving equal access to mental health services; potentially creating a ‘Food Atlas’ measuring and monitoring food access across the state, for replication nationally; and examining how the built environment can be modified to improve children’s physical activity, eating habits and weight status
