Listen `Ear

Ear disease is a significant health issue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and is the leading cause of hearing loss.  To address this, the Australian Government has funded a National Indigenous Ear Health Campaign which aims to reduce the incidence of otitis media (ear disease) in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by increasing awareness, highlighting risk factors and promoting the importance of seeking and following treatment to prevent loss of hearing.  As part of the campaign, BIMA Projects and the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing are developing radio messages and programs to inform Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners in south-east Queensland about otitis media.  You’ll be able to tune into 98.9FM for daily information about otitis media, the risk factors and prevention.  You can also visit the Australian Government’s website on otitis media for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people which also includes otitis media resources for parents and carers, teachers and early childhood workers.
