Pacific Islands Families Study

PIF logo


The Pacific Islands Families (PIF) Study is following a cohort of 1398 Pacific children within their family environment over the first 13 years of the child's life. Extensive consultation within Pacific communities has contributed to the development of this multidisciplinary project and the inclusion of psychosocial and health concepts that are relevant to these communities. It is anticipated that this prospective, longitudinal study will generate important practical information on Pacific child and family health and psychosocial functioning over critical developmental stages.
