A study of Aboriginal women's journeys with Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in Australia found that women and their families rarely had a deep understanding of the cause or implications of their disease. Despite contact with health staff, often since childhood, participants lacked understanding of the severity of their illness and its implications for childbearing. Several information/educational initiatives were developed to improve health literacy and have informed other strategies.
