This companion report represents the views of the 102 women from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds who responded to the original health and wellbeing survey (who comprised 15 percent of the total sample) and the views of eleven CALD women who participated in a focus group discussion. CALD women are proactive in seeking out health and wellbeing information; seeking it from a variety of sources, in a variety of media, on a variety of topics. Yet CALD women can face specific cultural and linguistic barriers that make obtaining the health and wellbeing information they need difficult, including not being able to access culturally appropriate services or information in languages other than English. It is WCHM’s hope that these companion reports will improve understanding of particular groups of women in the ACT in order to facilitate health and wellbeing information provision that is responsive to their needs.
