As part of the National Indigenous ear health campaign, Brisbane Indigenous Media Association Projects (BIMA Projects) has released a series of short podcasts about otitis media (ear disease) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Ear disease is a significant health issue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and is the leading cause of hearing loss.
The campaign is designed to increase awareness of ear disease, highlight risk factors and promote the importance of seeking and following treatment to prevent loss of hearing.
The podcasts have been developed by BIMA Projects and the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing as radio messages and programs created to inform Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners in south-east Queensland about otitis media.
BIMA Projects is a creative team of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander media workers whose aim is to create culturally-appropriate radio, print and online communication resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia on a broad range of topics covering health, education, employment, law, housing and culture.
