Northeast Arnhem Land regional ear health campaign

 

Overview

The Northeast Arnhem Land regional ear health campaign aims to increase the understanding of ear health for the Yolngu Aboriginal people of north-east Arnhem Land. The project concentrates on increasing understanding of foundational concepts related to ear health, including, the germ theory of disease, hearing and early childhood development, and the anatomy of internal structures of the ear.

The project's goals are achieved by:

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing, the Northeast Arnhem Land regional ear health campaign will add nineteen radio programs in Yolngu Matha to the six existing radio programs produced from a similar project of education sessions. This earlier project was funded by the Laynhapuy Homelands Association and Anglicare's Communities for children program, and implemented by the Aboriginal Resource and Development Services (ARDS) over a twelve month period.
