In this week’s interview, we talk with the Honourable Ken Wyatt AM, MP – the Federal Minister for Indigenous Health, and the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care.
We talk with Minister Wyatt about a range of health and aged care issues that affect Anangu living in remote communities across South Australia.
In particular, we focus on the positive developments about community-based dialysis and the introduction of the new Medicare remote dialysis item; we’ll also talk about ear health and hearing loss; the work being done on trying to get rid of eye diseases such as Trachoma; the challenges of Rheumatic Heart Disease; the increase in reported cases of Syphilis in the Northern Territory; and the needs of senior Australians living in remote communities.
