Acknowledgements - Milpa’s Six Steps to Stop Germs

IEH would like to acknowledge and thank a wide range of partners who were involved in the consultation. Some of those involved included community members and Elders, linguists, artists, Aboriginal health and environmental health organisations, hygiene networks and Government trachoma programs across NT, WA and SA.

Thank you to Aboriginal community members and many other individuals, organisations and networks who offered their time and expert views to refine best practice hygiene actions into clear and consistent hygiene messages to help prevent trachoma and other infections.

While many non-Indigenous organisations provided invaluable expertise, Indigenous voices were privileged above the non-Indigenous to ensure the resources were culturally appropriate and had meaningful imagery and text.
