Participation in education, employment or training among young people has been linked to future employment, higher incomes and job security, positioning them for social and economic advantage and social inclusion. Young people who finish Year 12 or similar are more likely to complete further study or training, get a job, earn more and be better prepared for future challenges.

Babies are born healthy

Children and young people who are born healthy and have a healthy start are more likely to be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy as they grow up and to enjoy good health outcomes throughout their lives. Factors that may adversely affect longer-term health outcomes include smoking during pregnancy and babies born with a low birthweight. Protective factors inducive to good outcomes include early and regular antenatal care.
