Highest Rheumatic Heart Disease in the World
This news item has started to gather together a coalition of interested people around the issue of Rheumatic Heart Disease. But we still have not got the money to produce a good life-saving video so I am going to leave the news item up to see if we can get some more supporters.
We are still looking for supporters who can help us turn life saving health information, structured on the people's language and worldview, into dynamic easy to access videos.
East Arnhem Land has the highest rates of Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in the world. The story board below is for RHD. I have used it many times to explain the deep biomedical RHD story to Yolŋu patients and it really works. I am convinced that this story board made into a video would make a massive difference, giving thousands of Yolŋu people real life saving knowledge, around RHD, in their own language and cultural way.
If you know of someone who might be interested in partnering with us in this great venture, or if you want to make it your project to raise the money needed to develop the video please get in touch.
Health Workers, Nurses and Doctors will be able to use these videos directly with their patients, Yolŋu families who are affected will also have access to them.
