This project employs a qualitative research approach to study the barriers to effective infectious and parasitic disease interventions in Aboriginal communities.
The project arose due to the prevalence of infectious and parasitic disease cases in Indigenous communities in comparison to urban areas and the lack of success of past initiatives in reducing the number of disease cases. Essentially this project seeks to understand why intervention barriers exist and how such barriers can be addressed by researchers and policy makers.
This study will develop a model that Indigenous communities, clinicians, policy makers and researchers can use to guide the implementation of sustainable infectious disease interventions. The outcomes of this project will help guide, inform and improve future infectious disease intervention strategies and programs.
