People from refugee and migrant communities in Australia have experienced major social, economic, physical and mental health issues associated with COVID-19 but many have not benefited from the Federal Government’s changes in response to the pandemic.
In this impact2021 webinar, our panel will share insights from their work which aims to make health and technology systems more culturally and linguistically inclusive, including community-based approaches to research and evaluation.
The panel will also discuss options for future opportunities, including those focused on translation in video conferencing, the Health Translation Directory and Translation Interpreting Service, and the growing need to better support refugees and migrants living in rural and regional areas of Australia, with a specific focus on:
> Reducing language, cultural and technology barriers
> Improving social safety nets and broader conditions of life for refugees and migrants
> Specific conditions, such as trauma, anxiety and depression, dental health, sexual and reproductive health, and immunisation
