This project aims to define the exact burden (morbidity and mortality) of severe influenza and other respiratory viruses in Aboriginal children younger than three years of age. The project will examine the hospitalisation rates for Aboriginal children with these conditions who are admitted to Royal Darwin Hospital over a two year period.
The financial cost of hospitalisation will also be explored as this can be linked to any policy recommendation for the vaccination for influenza in Aboriginal children in the Northern Territory.
This is a two year project due to finish in 2010.
