Abstract/Summary The Deadly Ears Deadly Kids Deadly Communities (DEDKDC) Framework was initiated in 2009, and was aligned to the Queensland government’s whole of government close the gap plan, “Making tracks: a state-wide plan towards addressing the gap in health outcomes for Indigenous Queenslanders 2009–2013”. The Framework targets a reduction in the significant rates of otitis media (OM) in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. OM is the result of an interaction between medical and environmental causes. As such, the Framework aims to reduce both the incidence and impact of conductive hearing loss associated with OM by intervening at a number of different levels, from the local to the national, and across different sectors.
