Abstract: A coordinated, community-based approach is required to reduce the prevalence of scabies and skin sores within Northern Territory (NT) communities. Scabies is currently endemic in many remote Aboriginal communities with prevalence up to 50% in children and 25% in adults. Apart from the individual discomfort caused by scabies, it underlies 50% to 70% of streptococcal skin infections. Control of scabies is therefore critical in controlling streptococcal skin infections and its sequelae.
