MH Week 2018
 
 

 

Each Multicultural Health Week has a theme that helps focus discussion and action for that year. The theme for this year is Health Literacy with the tag line ‘Talk, Listen, Ask – for better health’.

The aim this year is to raise health workers’ awareness of the importance of health literacy when working with people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
