Health Literacy Partnerships: Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association (CIWA)

This project aims to improve health outcomes for low literacy newcomer women, including refugees, with this series of tools and resources. These tools help people access healthcare services by learning to navigate the healthcare system better, reducing the barriers to accessing services and improving health literacy outcomes.

They can be used by healthcare professionals and language instructors, and are available in multiple languages (Arabic, Farsi, Hindi, Mandarin, Spanish, Tigrinya, Urdu).
