The Organisation

One Disease is a ground breaking not-for-profit organisation with a sole purpose to eliminate crusted scabies from remote indigenous communities by 2022. The One Disease program is developed in partnership with our First People.

Crusted scabies is a highly contagious and chronic form of skin disease. People with crusted scabies become engulfed with millions of scabies mites and if left untreated have a 50% mortality rate over 5 years. Seven in ten Indigenous children in remote NT communities suffer from scabies at least once before their first birthday.

The One Disease Crusted Scabies Elimination Campaign is known in community as the Healthy Skin Program. The campaign promotes the management of the disease via the delivery of education programs and strong local community partnerships so patients work together with local clinics to manage the disease.
