Active trachoma data collected in 2006, prior to the commencement of the NTSRU, were reported by the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia. In most regions, Aboriginal children aged 5-9 years were screened for signs of active trachoma, following the World Health Organization simplified trachoma grading system. The first annual report published in Communicable Diseases Intelligence is for 2006.

A more comprehensive annual report is published on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health web site.
