We are Creating a Knowledge Hub

We have now arrived at an understanding, through our clinical service delivery in multicultural health, for the need to create a  multicultural health knowledge hub. It is clear to us that we are a long way of achieving health equity, eliminating health disparities and improving the health of the multicultural population due to a lack of independent and authoritative information to credibly inform and respond to multicultural health.

Whilst there is national and international research data and evidence from multicultural health services and programs across Australia, demonstrating deeply entrenched health inequities for ethnic minorities, the data is often high level or inadequate to offer more than broad recommendations or sweeping statements that have not evolved into any substantial changes in health care systems and delivery. 

 

From the earliest stages of our work, we were aware of the need to build an understanding of the extent and nature of the relationship between ethnicity, social determinants and multiple disadvantage. Informed by our own practice experience we will now build a multicultural health knowledge hub bringing together data, research, ethnographic work, practice informed knowledge and experience, and lived experience to fully synthesise, integrate and contextualise information to provide a full and authoritative understanding of the interrelationship between inequity, systemic barriers, social determinants, disadvantage, ethnicity and poor health outcomes. 

Purpose of the Knowledge Hub

By developing a Knowledge Hub as part of our enterprise we aim to provide a platform where those working and those concerned about health inequity and the multicultural population can galvanise to share information and data from multiple perspectives to provide a more sophisticated understanding of the issues and to determine what levers of change are required to achieve health equity. 

 

Specifically, we intend to: 

 

• Increase understanding about the implications of the current data gaps about the health of the multicultural   population

 

• Increase understanding about the intersectionality of ethnicity, social determinants, disadvantage, and poorer health outcomes 

 

• Focus on structural inequities and systemic disadvantage 

 

• Focus on the detail to determine the solutions 

 

• Share knowledge of application through training, master-classes and other learning formats  

Join us

We have the expertise, vision and understanding, just not the resources. However, this has not stopped us in the past from setting up World Wellness Group and we will continue to work for a Knowledge Hub.
