We are excited to announce the launch of our new advocacy and research project, Building Bridges, which aims to strengthen mental health services for migrant and refugee women through direct participation of the community in the mental health reform process.

During the first stages of the pandemic, people who died of COVID-19 and were born overseas had an age-standardised death rate that was 2.5 times higher than people who were born in Australia. What’s causing this disparity in Covid-19 deaths? New data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) reveals that for migrant and refugee communities, limited access to in-language and culturally tailored health information is a big contributor.
