Recognising & treating skin conditions

This full-colour flipchart is specifically targeted at an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audience for whom English is not a first language. It uses photographs and easy-to-understand descriptions to show and explain the different kinds of skin conditions likely to affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and how best to treat them. It is designed for use by health professionals working in remote locations but, due to the confronting nature of the images, it may not suited for broad dissemination. The flipchart can be downloaded, but is not available in hard copy. Produced by East Arnhem Healthy Skin Project 2009
