Experts converge in Darwin to beat rheumatic heart disease

Experts from around the country have converged in Darwin, Northern Territory for the RHDAustralia Conference 2013: Practice and Culture to strengthen Australia's fight to prevent rheumatic heart disease (RHD). The conference is on Tuesday 5 November and Wednesday 6 November.

Paediatrician and Indigenous child health expert Professor Jonathan Carapetis will present new approaches to controlling RHD in Australia, advances in heart screening, vaccine development, and an understanding of what causes rheumatic fever.

The conference will also include streams on RHD genetics, immunology, mortality trends, delivery of secondary prophylaxis for RHD, and RHD in pregnancy.
