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).

Ninti One Research Report NR002 20 Evaluation of the National Trachoma Health Promotion Programme Ninti One Limited Report for Indigenous Eye Health University of Melbourne Dataset 10.1: Aggregated responses according to theme for the questions What are you doing about clean faces? and What can you do about clean faces? In Dataset 10.1, we have aggregated the majority of categories into new groups (educating others vs. individual behaviour change); however, for more general categories (i.e. shower everyday) the individual responses were reviewed to determine the appropriate new grouping. Ambiguous responses such as wash, which could pertain to washing children or themselves, were assigned to the not sure/others category. 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 Educating others (parents/family) Individual/personal focus Not sure/ others
