Multicultural health

Western Australia is home to the largest proportion of people born overseas, making ours the most culturally diverse state in the nation. 

WA Health recognises that with more than 270 languages spoken by people who are living, working or studying in Western Australia, our health system must be supported to provide culturally appropriate services and care.

Language services 

Language Services Policy and Guidelines supports Health Service Providers in developing effective communication between staff and clients, improving service delivery and outcomes for all Western Australians.
