Empowering multicultural women through health education

AMES

In the period of July – September an expert team of MCWH bilingual health educators facilitated our free health education program for state-wide female students of the Adult Migrant English Service (AMES) at the Multicultural Hub in the CBD. It was a greatly empowering program for all women involved! We discussed all health related aspects concerning women and their families including sexual and reproductive health, mental health, women’s safety, healthy nutrition and lifestyle, and many more. The culmination of the eight week program was an evaluation day, where women shared the impact our education had on their everyday lives including understanding the importance of prevention, changing old habits and behaviours and making more informed decisions to act on in the future. We enjoyed a celebration which involved awarding all women participants with Certificate of Attendance.

Here is one of many quotes demonstrating the impact of the MCWH health education program on women:

“ I have never thought that being compelled to have sex should constitute some form of domestic violence, because in my family I have never discussed this with my mother. My mother gave me advice that to maintain happy family the first thing I need to do is make my husband happy. I have never said ‘no’ to my husband since I married him.”
