RHD Resouces

Sticking to Treatment

West Australian performance artist Nelson Baker has turned his experience of living with rheumatic heart disease into a powerful video message to other young Australians. The rap was written by Nelson and the music video was produced by Goolarri Media for the Western Australia Country Health Service (WACHS). In it, Nelson raps about the importance of adhering to a decade-long regime of monthly penicillin shots to prevent recurrences of rheumatic fever.
