We are pleased to support the 2022 Multicultural Health Week (5-11 September). The Multicultural Health Week highlights the importance of embracing language and culture in our health services. It also provides an opportunity to raise awareness about health challenges facing our multicultural communities. This year’s Cancer Screening Saves Lives theme raises awareness of cancer screening, to increase bowel, breast, and cervical cancer screening among CALD communities.
The 2021 Census data show more than 29 per cent of all New South Wales residents were born overseas and more than 30 per cent speak a language other than English at home.
