The team has developed a “Health Ambassadors” workshop for cultural mediators/translators, case workers, field officers working with refugees in different NGOs.
More than 20 participants and 13 trainers participated, representing 15 organizations.
The workshop focused on the common challenges faced by refugees in access to healthcare, the ways to overcome these challenges and make better use of the referral system among both hospitals & NGOs.
Following up the “Health Ambassadors” workshop, the local team prepared a guide book for intercultural mediators. Upon receiving a grant, the team implemented the project “Health Mediators”, with Ardıç Solidarity Association during which the team organized webinars and produced short videos on different health topics.
