Indigenous eye health project

 

Overview

The Indigenous eye health project aimed to improve the eye health of Indigenous Australians by raising awareness of major eye health issues, such as trachoma and diabetic retinopathy, in the community.

The project involved the production of two educational television programs for health and medical professionals, and Indigenous communities. The programs discuss different eye health diseases, as well as the continuum of eye care that includes prevention, early detection, treatment, and rehabilitation.

The programs, titled A clear view: improving Indigenous eye health and See strong: improving Indigenous eye health, were broadcast on the Rural Health Education Foundation network in 2011.
