Study Wave Hill Trachoma Survey (1975)

April 1975
May 1975


In April/May 1975 individuals were assessed for problems with their ears and eyes as part of the Trachoma survey at four different locations around Wave Hill: Wave Hill Station, Inverway Station, Wave Hill Centre, and Hooker Creek Settlement. Dr Kirk obtained blood samples which were surplus to the Trachoma survey from Dr Doris Graham (Department of Microbiology, University of Melbourne), who coordinated with Dr Spicer at the Northern Territory Department of Health. Kirk typed the samples for serum protein and red cell enzyme variants.
