Communities Direct Health Information


Access to accurate, accessible, up-to-date health information is more important now than ever. And for many refugee and migrant women, basic literacy in their own language can be a struggle due to being denied formal schooling in their countries of origin.

To reach more people, and to do our part in keeping Victorians safe, we have worked in collaboration with Community Four to develop Communities Direct - a migrant and refugee-led initiative that supports culturally and linguistically diverse groups to access important COVID updates through their trusted networks.

Weekly updates, priority messages, and significant announcements are:


Collated directly from Government sources

Translated by professional translators, in text & audio for varying literacy levels

Sent on behalf of community leaders through their established direct messaging networks, including Viber and WhatsApp
