    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


    Acute rheumatic fever (ARF) predominantly affects young people in rural and remote Indigenous communities. However, it is more common than previously thought in urban areas, and it is likely that milder or atypical cases are being missed. Prevention and treatment programs for ARF and rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in Australia have increased in recent years, and their focus is moving towards a co-ordinated national approach.
