ADDITIONAL MULTI-CULTURAL RESOURCES

Further Educational resources can be found on the Life For A Child Website. 

The International Diabetes Federation “Life for a Child” Programme was established in 2000 with support from Diabetes NSW (formerly Australian Diabetes Council) and HOPE worldwide.

It is an innovative and sustainable support programme in which individuals, families and organisations contribute monetary or in-kind donations to help children with diabetes in developing countries.

The formula is simple: contributions from donors go to established diabetes centres enabling them to provide the ongoing clinical care and diabetes education children need to stay alive.

The centres provide comprehensive clinical and financial feedback to the Programme management team in Sydney, Australia: www.idf.org/lifeforachild/the-programme

Multicultural Health Communications Service

The NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (Multicultural Communication) provides information for consumers and information and services to assist health professionals to communicate with non English speaking communities throughout New South Wales. The NSW Department of Health funds the service, and endorses the multilingual health information published on the website. There are over 400 publications on health in a wide range of languages and a new publication is produced each month. Some multilingual resources produced by other services are also listed on this website and there are links to related websites.

The Service also produces resources and translation guidelines, and acts as a central point of referral to other agencies and workers undertaking research with ethnic communities.
