Field of Work: Immigration and refugee media projects to address health and health care issues
Problem Synopsis: Immigrants and refugees often struggle to obtain the health care they need because of cultural and language barriers. One of the key ways they can get information about health issues is through media, but the media must be culturally and linguistically relevant to immigrants and refugees.
Synopsis of the Work: New Routes to Community Health brought together immigrant-led groups, local media organizations, and community institutions in eight cities to use storytelling and media making to address the health concerns of immigrants and refugees.
