In antiquity, the Great Pyramid of Giza the only wonder from the original list still standingthe statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Colossus of Rhodes a new gigantic, version of which is being built todayand others were among the occupants of the list.

Forgotten but not gone: The community event raised awareness and generated discussion around a disease that has been all but forgotten in metropolitan and mainstream Australia. Bringing acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease back into the public light Health professionals working in Northern Australia may have heard of acute rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease, they may know the pathology of the disease and infection, or even have treated people with these serious conditions.
But, for most Australians, these are diseases relegated to turn of the century medical books as long forgotten illnesses that may resonate with those from the Silent and Baby Boomer Generations but probably not with most Gen Xs, Ys and Zs. It is a statement, often used in relation to acute rheumatic fever ARF and rheumatic heart disease RHDabout the social amnesia of wider Australia towards a disease that predominantly affects Indigenous children between years of age.
Charlie King, the panel facilitator, in opening the event captured its purpose when he said: Paediatric cardiologist, Bo Remenyi had this to say about the importance of addressing overcrowding: The panel, responding to questions from audience members, spoke on a number of topics related to ARF and RHD including, the social and cultural determinants of health, how health and education departments can and should work together more effectively, how government and industry can improve public health responses, what good health literacy looks like, and how cultural considerations must be taken into account to ensure social justice and inequality are recognised and addressed.
The audience also heard from Edwin Eddie Masina who has shared his powerful story with many people over the years. Eddie spoke about how important it was for him to share his journey and reflected on a past encounter he had with a leading vaccine researcher.
The importance of storytelling in educating others was not lost on Vicki who explained: Do you have a rheumatic heart disease story to share? Those in attendance were motivated by Eddie, Marita, Cherie and Kenya to do more, learn more and advocate more for those living with this disease, and to safeguard future generations from the damage done by this devastating disease, which is a marker of poverty and disadvantage.
Oral storytelling is at the heart of Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture. The stories of those affected by rheumatic heart disease — patients, families, communities — must be heard, they are a catalyst for action and inspire and inform improved practice.
