The Trachoma Story Kit was developed by a collaboration of Indigenous Eye Health, the Ngumpin Reference Group at Katherine West Health Board and the Centre for Disease Control Department of Health NT. By bringing together Aboriginal experts and clinical stakeholders the resources incorporate clinical knowhow with culturally acceptable, user friendly language and realistic images of contemporary Indigenous communities.
IEH has received generous support from; The Harold Mitchell Foundation, The Ian Potter Foundation, BB & A Miller Foundation, CBM Australia, The Cybec Foundation, The Aspen Foundation, "K" Line Logistics , Mr Greg Poche AO, Assoc Prof David Middleton, Mr Peter Anastasiou, Mr Rob Bowen, Dr Vera Bowen, Mr Noel Andresen and Dr Mark & Alla Medownick. Their ongoing support and encouragement allows us to work on 'Closing the Gap' for Indigenous Eye Health.
IEH and The University of Melbourne also receive funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.
