The Central Australian rheumatic heart disease program:
The program covers a huge area of the Northern Territory (which encompasses the Alice Springs and Barkly regions), the Anangu-Pitjantjatjarra lands in South Australia, the Ngaanyatjarra lands in Western Australia and extends to the Queensland border (approximately 1 000 000 sq kms).
An initial program was temporarily funded for 12 months, and the program then became fully operational in June 2002.
