The extraordinary effort of health workers to reach multicultural communities with important messages, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been recognised at the 2021 Multicultural Health Communication Awards.
NSW Health Secretary Elizabeth Koff said NSW Health is committed to delivering health care that is personalised, invests in wellness and is also digitally enabled.
“I would like to commend the finalists and winners for their tremendous work in partnering with multicultural communities to deliver culturally and linguistically tailored health information that enhances their access to, and experience of care”, Ms Elizabeth Koff said.
Ms Lisa Woodland, Director, NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service said this year's winners demonstrate excellence in multilingual health communication.
