Multilingual Health Education Partnerships

MCWH receives state government funding to provide free health education workshops to migrant women in over 20 languages across Victoria. If you are interested in hosting free health workshops for migrant women at your service, business, organisation, or social club, visit our Health Education Page or contact us.

To see our Health Education Program in action you can watch this Vietnamese language workshop one of our educators delivered online.

Our Multilingual Health Partnership service also allows organisations, researchers and services to draw on the expertise of our health education team to support their own health projects and programs.
