Multicultural Community Education ignites

April 19, 2021

This month, LiverWELL’s Multicultural Community Educators have been raising awareness about the importance of hepatitis B blood tests, vaccination and treatment through educational sessions, short talks, and handing bags of education resources to at least 600 people in three communities – Cambodian, Filipino and Vietnamese – in the Greater Dandenong, Cranbourne, Kingston, Maribyrnong and Geelong regions of Melbourne.

These sessions and talks were provided by our Priority Population team (PPT) in collaboration with various community organisations: Unified Filipino Elderly Association, Philippine Association of Geelong, Cambodian Association of Victoria, Australian Vietnamese Women’s Association and the Wat Khmer Melbourne, Wat Monirangsi and Wat Buddharangsi Buddhist pagodas.

LiverWELL’s Priority Population Team has managed to reach out to more than 2,700 Cambodian people on a community Facebook page (SK Media) to raise awareness of the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine for people living with chronic liver disease.
