Many students from the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) were born in hepatitis B endemic countries, so learning about how to get tested, vaccinated and treated in time is crucial.
LiverWELL held two sessions on hepatitis B at the Swinburne Institute of Technology Croydon Campus earlier in November with English students under AMEP. With the help of teachers, students completed the Living Well with Hepatitis B workbook, and had opportunities to practice their English listening, speaking, reading and writing skills with their classmates.
There are many challenges that organisations face in responding to the needs of these populations, especially when it comes to getting tested, vaccinated, and treated. Holding education sessions with the Australian Migrant English Program is an effective approach to connecting with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, or priority populations.
LiverWELL delivers free viral hepatitis and liver disease education sessions, resources and materials to all AMEP providers. If you would like to book a session with one of our Multicultural Educators, please contact us.
