The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity & Health (CEH) is a unique agency offering expertise in cultural diversity and health, cultural competence, social marketing, cross-cultural communication and consumer participation and health literacy to organisations across Australia.
We assist other organisations to provide a high quality of service to clients from migrant and refugee backgrounds. Our clients include hospitals, government departments, local councils, health centres, community services and higher education providers. We support them with training, social marketing services, advice, resources and information.
The Multicultural Health & Support Service (MHSS) is a program of the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health (CEH). MHSS works with refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and mobile populations in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria to prevent new incidences and transmission of blood borne viruses (BBV) and sexually transmissible infections (STI). MHSS collaborates with priority communities which are identified through surveillance data and other risk factors, to improve their access to information, testing, care and support. MHSS also works with service providers to build capacity to design and implement culturally competent and inclusive services that provide appropriate care and support to people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
Multicultural Drug Support (MDS) is a program of CEH. We work collaboratively with ethnic communities to improve health literacy regarding alcohol and other drugs. The program was established in response to unmet community needs including the lack of culturally sensitive support for whole families regarding AOD and mental health issues post arrival. Current capacity has limited the focus of the program to community education sessions. There is a growing need for the program to work more intensely with individuals and families.
CEH is part of North Richmond Community Health, an agency committed to making healthcare more accessible and culturally relevant.
