Developing an effective, fully costed Endgame Strategy requires extensive collaboration beyond just the research community. In particular, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities, health workers, and policy makers are central to informing the development of the strategy. This process of collaboration includes a wide range of formal and informal consultation activities including:

As draft recommendations come together in late 2018 and early 2019, these consultation activities are increasing and will include:

  • Evidence summaries presented for input
  • A series of qualitative consultations to discuss priorities in addressing the social determinants of health and health systems elements of RHD control
  • A Delphi process to develop consensus about technical and clinical issues
  • Document review of existing recommendations for tackling RHD in Australia
  • Feedback from stakeholders
