A CD to help tackle middle ear disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children was launched last month.
Produced by local radio station Tjuma Pulka, it was launched on-air and is part of a Federal Government campaign to help raise awareness of middle ear disease.
Station manager Debbie Carmody said the key message people should take away from the campaign is ear disease is serious.
“Ear disease can cause loss of hearing forever,” Ms Carmody said.
A treatable and preventable disease, Ms Carmody said it was important to get children’s ears checked regularly, as often there were no symptoms.
“Children are not born with ear infections, but they can get an infection soon after birth,” she said.
