What is Health Translations?

Health Translations
is a Victorian Government initiative managed and maintained by the Centre for Culture Ethnicity and Health on behalf of the Department of Health.

Health Translations aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. We do this by providing health professionals and community members with reliable and up to date health and wellbeing information in over 100 languages.

The library links to multilingual resources published by Australian government departments, peak health bodies, hospitals, and community health and welfare organisations.
