The project took place as an urgent response to the concerns of the spread of the H1N1 influenza virus (swine flu) during 2009. The project involved the establishment of a mobile flu team to carry out health checks in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Hunter New England region of New South Wales. The project was delivered within a culturally appropriate framework.
A toolkit consisting of posters was also developed to provide information to people attending health clinics. The posters were also sent to local stores, schools, day care centres and police stations.
The project model continues to be used for other mobile clinics.
