Translated health information about medicines

Taking medicines can help improve your health. However, there are potential risks involved in using all medicines, including prescription, over-the-counter, traditional and herbal medicines. These risks can be higher for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, particularly those with low English language proficiency and literacy levels.

NPS MedicineWise works with the Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia (FECCA) and other organisations to create resources that provide information for CALD communities on the quality use of medicines.
