Delivering health messages to newly arrived communities

A model of delivering health messages to newly arrived communities

An example, increasing dementia awareness through ethnic radio for newly arrived communities.

This model is based on the findings of the Australian Multicultural Foundation (AMF) Project Memory loss: Disrupting daily life: A national dementia campaign which was a Dementia Community Support Grant Program funded through the Australian Government’s Dementia Initiative, 2009.

The project  undertook a dementia awareness campaign for newly arrived communities through SBS national radio language programs including Somali, Sudanese (Arabic),Persian Farsi, Dari, African (English), Amharic, and Burmese.
