This Menzies School of Health Research project aims to increase the amount of preventative treatment given to people with acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD).
The objective of the program is to test whether a model of care designed to optimise health systems and community resources improves adherence to secondary prophylaxis for RHD.
This three and a half year project will involve approximately ten remote health clinics in the Northern Territory, and if successful, the package could be implemented across remote health centres in Australia.
