Health Professional Radio: The Health News - 28th November 2016

The Australian Medical Association launched its national 2016 report card on Indigenous health, taking the unusual step of homing in on one disease as its priority —rheumatic heart disease (RHD). AMA president Michael Gannon said the association had chosen to focus on the disease because it wanted to see it eradicated entirely.

IHHP - Merredin “Gotta Keep it Strong”

Indigenous Hip Hop Projects was proud to work with the Njaki Njaki community of Merredin and partner with the Merredin Aboriginal Project Inc. (MAPI), University of Western Australia, Centre for Aboriginal Medical and Dental Health and Telethon Kids Institute to create this music video.  MAPI and partners are grateful for the generous support of the project’s major sponsor, Collgar Wind Farm.

In this video the koolungars (children) of Njaki Njaki Country want to share with you all they learned from Dr Asha about how to avoid getting infections that cause skin sores, sore throats, and runny ears. These infections are not a normal part of growing up and we must treat them otherwise bad bacteria can stay around and cause severe illnesses, including rheumatic heart disease and glomerulonephritis. To have strong health we must go to the clinic for regular checks, go to see the doctor and be proactive in protecting ourselves and our community.

Our connection to country, strong culture and strong spirit are important to our strong health. Our proud Njaki Njaki koolungars share with you our story. On a granite outcrop at sunset, Njaki Njaki boys perform a traditional bird dance of our totem ‘Maarli’ (the black swan). Maarli are strong and withstand being tormented by the little mischievous Djitty Djitty (willy wag tails). Maarli are much stronger than the kulbardi (magpies) who get frustrated and retaliate when the playful Djitty Djitty boldly provoke them. The Maarli teach us to be strong.

This is the story about how young people in South Auckland in New Zealand are beating Rheumatic Fever. Told in their ‘beat’.

In October 2016 a group of 25 South Auckland students came together to design, write, illustrate and record a poem about how to prevent rheumatic fever in their community.

With the help of poet and performance artist Daren Kamali, health and education experts, and the team from KIWA, the students created an interactive storybook app that takes a fresh approach to communicating key messages. Learn more about the workshop here
Making of Beat.fever

The project was funded by the Rheumatic Fever Māori Community Fund.

Beat.fever has audio and text in English and te Reo Maori, with some other languages mixed in, and is rich in the expression and idiom of its authors. As the students say, LISTEN UP, there are important messages here.

The app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
