Project Management

We manage the Health Translations Directory on behalf of the Department of Health & Human Services

The Health Translations Directory aims to improve the health of people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.  We do this by providing health professionals and community members with reliable, accurate, and up to date health information in many different languages.

We have managed the site, on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services, since 2014. Since then we have partnered with many high profile organisations to increase the availability of content. We ensure the topics and languages represented are relevant. Every day hundreds of health professionals and people from our community access the site across Victoria, Australia and all around the world.
