Improving the cancer status of non-English speaking communities

Improving the cancer status of non-English speaking communities


The Hon. Victor Dominello, MP, Minister for Citizenship and Communities will join Cancer Council NSW to launch a Multilingual Communications Approach aimed at making cancer resources and support easily available to non-English speaking communities.

As part of this, Cancer Council NSW has developed a number of multilingual websites, including Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Macedonia and Vietnamese.

In addition to the websites and online resources, Cancer Council NSW has a commitment to improving the cancer status of people from non-English speaking backgrounds and is currently conducting research that looks at cancers that are more prevalent in specific cultural groups.

The Minister will be joined at the launch by Cancer Council NSW CEO Regina Sutton, cancer survivors and community representatives from multicultural organisations.
