15NRHC Recommendation - 03/26/2019 - 17:57

Government commitment to prevent further cases of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease in Australia. We need support for the rural and remote workforce, and support for education in primary prevention of RHD for all at-risk communities. The Government must recognize this is an entirely preventable disease that is affecting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, and urgent action is needed
