COVID-19 health information in your language
At Multicultural Centre for Women's Health, we are committed to improving your health and wellbeing.
We believe that everyone has the right to get accurate and up to date health information in their own language. We recognise that COVID-19 (coronavirus) is a gendered issue and that migrant women need information that is relevant to their experiences.
We are developing multilingual resources on health topics that you might be experiencing during this crisis, such as mental health, chronic illness, pregnancy and family violence.
New resources will be added to this page. However, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if we do not have the information you need.
To stay up to date about the virus, you can call the Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080. You can ask for an interpreter by calling TIS on 13 14 50.
