'My Body. My Health.' A health education toolkit

'My Body. My Health.' is a series of five educational presentations to help organisations deliver health information to women from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
The presentations were developed with the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health, and involved consultation and collaboration with service providers, clinicians, women from migrant and refugee communities, and multicultural health organisations.

Each PowerPoint presentation is available to download in plain English, and now in the Karen language (translated by Ethnolink).

The toolkit is written in plain English and guided by health literacy principles, making it practical and easy to understand and use. It is specifically designed for women who don’t know the Australian healthcare system and struggle to make informed decisions about their health. The presentations can be delivered by health professionals, educators, social workers or community leaders. They encourage conversations with women about good health.
