SHFPACT, together with CarersACT, produced a Menopause Brochure in Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and Tongan, as well as PowerPoint presentations in the five community languages.
Menopause is a normal episode in a woman's life, which all women encounter in middle age. Many women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, however, often find it difficult to access information and health support services in a way that is appropriate for them. SHFPACT and CarersACT applied jointly to the Health Promotions Grants (Healthpact) to develop high quality information products and presentations in five community languages.
The project, which involved staff from SHFPACT's Menopause Centre, SHFPACT's Professional & Community Education Program, as well as translators from CarersACT, produced five fabulous brochures, and presented Menopause Information Workshops in community languages to carer groups from CarersACT's "Caring Across Communities" program.
