We demand provision of resources for the underprivileged in the suburbs of the Gold Coast active program monitoring and coordination equivalent to that found in successful programs in more remote areas. Infectious diseases, although accounting for only a minority of the excess disease burden, are particularly promoted by features of their disadvantage, such as overcrowding, poor infrastructure for health and hygiene, and poor nutrition. Vaccine-preventable diseases are particularly amenable to rapid and cost-effective prevention, and targeted vaccination programs have been shown to reduce health disparities.Deaths attributed to influenza and pneumonia are significantly higher in Australians that are living in non-remote areas.(47% v 26% for influenza vaccine and 20% v 3% for pneumococcal vaccine)(75% v 45% and 48% v 19% for influenza and pneumococcal vaccine)If the underprivileged people of the Gold Coast receive care, deaths will decrease majorly from failure of getting immunisations.
