CEH is helping Interpreters to understand the complexities and distinct terminology of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in order to perform their role in an informed and accurate manner.
Since 2018 we’ve trained over 1000 interpreters in Victoria with the support of the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). This 2 hour workshop is offered as a ‘basic’ or ‘advanced’ version, and attracts 10 Professional Development points from NAATI.
More than 200,000 people in Australia are living with hepatitis B. Because the infection often has no symptoms until serious liver disease develops, only about 60% of people who are living with the virus are aware that they have been infected with hepatitis B.
HIV continues to be a major global public health issue with approximately 37.9 million people living with HIV globally.
Among the people born overseas in Australia, the highest HIV rates in 2017 were amongst people born in Southeast Asia, the Americas (North, Central and South America) and Sub Saharan Africa.
