This resource package about Melioidosis infection is designed to alert Aboriginal people living in the Kimberley of Western Australia, about the danger of infection which is caused by bacteria that live just below the ground. The bacteria are most prevalent following heavy seasonal rains. The package includes one poster and one brochure and highlights the symptoms of the infection, those most at risk and preventative measures.
