Funds to fight trachoma announced

Date posted: 14 July 2014

Communities in New South Wales, the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia will have their funding to fight eye disease trachoma continued.

Federal Assistant Health Minister, Fiona Nash, says the Government is providing 16.5 million dollars over the next four years to prevent and treat trachoma.

The funding will be targeted towards screening, treatment, management and prevention efforts.

Ms Nash says rates of trachoma in remote communities remain 'unacceptably high', but identified the 'Clean faces, strong eyes' campaign in the Northern Territory as a positive way forward.
