Hospitalisations of people from CALD backgrounds


What are the most common reasons that people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds are hospitalised?

We have just completed a brief overview of the hospitalisations of people living in WSLHD who were born in our top 4 CALD countries – India, China, Lebanon and the Philippines.

The information can be used to direct further investigation into the causes of hospitalisations of CALD communities in WSLHD, which can be used to guide planning, develop strategies, and strengthen prevention and health care programs.

The report was produced by Epidemiology and Health Analytics and is available from the publications section of our intranet page.
