Here is a short list of current and past projects that we have undertaken.
Health Translations is an online library which enables health practitioners and those working with culturally and linguistically diverse communities to easily find free translated health information.
Long COVID Project Phase 3
Since mid-2021, CEH has been raising awareness about long COVID and its impacts across cultural diverse communities particularly impacted by COVID-19. In this third phase of the long COVID project, CEH is bring together plain language and translated information from Australia and abroad in an online long COVID Resource Centre – a library of long COVID-related information accessible to people in their own language.
A collaboration with a group of young people in Fitzroy and Richmond, this VicHealth-funded project aims to raise awareness about the negative impact of alcohol abuse. The project is particularly directed at young people of African backgrounds, building on a previous multicultural drugs and alcohol project led by CEH in the South Sudanese community in the city of Yarra.
CEH is developing an online assessment tool for organisations and individuals to be able to measure their level of cultural competence around pillars such as organisational values, governance and communication. By improving cultural competence, organisations can make their services more accessible and responsive to the needs of migrant and refugee communities, resulting in better client outcomes.
In collaboration with Victorian hospitals, CEH produced a best practice resource for practitioners to use when producing patient health information. The project also produced translated patient messages for Emergency departments to use in their waiting rooms.
