This project aims to study acute respiratory illnesses and their outcomes in urban Indigenous children in Brisbane, Queensland. The project will explore the epidemiological, clinical, microbiological, social, cultural and economic factors associated with these illnesses. Children presenting to an Indigenous specific primary health care service will be followed for 12 months following an acute illness to examine the outcomes and impact of those illnesses.
The project is overseen by an Indigenous research reference group comprised of senior Indigenous researchers and clinicians and traditional owners and Elders of Brisbane.
