Ninti One was invited by Indigenous Eye Health (IEH) to conduct an evaluation of the Trachoma Health Promotion Programme (THPP). The project evaluated the work of IEH at the University of Melbourne and its contribution to the goals of the National THPP in six remote Aboriginal communities in Central Australia (namely the tristate border region of South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia). The intent of the project was to identify community knowledge and perceptions of the THPP and what impact this knowledge had on the respondents and their actions. The outputs will be used by IEH and others working in this field to continue the work of eliminating trachoma and to improve and develop future activities and initiatives. The research was conducted over six locations – Ali Curung, Finke, Lajamanu, Ntaria, Pukatja (Ernabella) and Warburton – ensuring that a sufficiently large and representative sample of people was reached in each community and overall across the population. - Executive summary; Made available via the Publications (Legal Deposit) Act 2004 (NT).

The preceding two questions are similar in character and elicit similar sets of responses. A useful way of viewing the data is to note the difference between responses that suggest the person themselves is doing or will do something about clean faces, and those responses that emphasise the teaching and encouraging of other people, such as children or parents. This analysis is provided in Dataset 10.1 below. 0 5 10 15 20 25 Clean/wash generally Educate people Helping kids to clean Keeping myself clean Keeping my kids clean Sore eyes - go to clinic Teaching kids how to wash Tell kids to keep clean Tell parents/family Wash/shower everyday Others Ali Curung Finke Ntaria Warburton Lajamanu Pukatja
