Blog Header Test 05 Health Communication in Practice

March 7, 2022

For various reasons, public health messages do not always reach migrant and refugee populations. This means that many people in these communities routinely experience worse health outcomes. Many people from migrant and refugee populations have limited experiences of public health messaging or complex health systems like Australia’s.

This makes work as multilingual health educators even more important, in overcoming health disparities and ensuring that communities know their rights and the services available to support them.

In this presentation Eman & Shweta share their learnings and insights, and talk about how to address various challenges such as:

  • Health communication when mainstream channels are unavailable
  • Building rapport and trust with diverse communities for effective health communication in short-term initiatives
  • How to approach stigmatized and culturally sensitive health topics
  • And more!
