Benny’s journey
Brisbane, Qld: Queensland RHD Control Program

This resource aims to raise awareness of rheumatic heart disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

The 12-minute cartoon, developed by the Queensland Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) Control Program, is aimed at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. It helps explain:

  • what RHD and acute rheumatic fever (ARF) are
  • why Bicillin injections are important
  • why a doctor should be seen immediately if a child has a sore throat.

The video is available in two versions: English and Torres Strait Creole.
