Cultural Mediators in Primary Health Care

The Migrant Health Liaison Office provides a cultural mediation (interpreter) service at Floriana Health Centre. The trained cultural mediators assist health professionals and clients to overcome language and cultural barriers. The training is provided by the Migrant Health Liaison Office and successful students are awarded a certificate. In 2016 the training programme was delivered in Ljubljana following the large influx of migrants in Slovenia in 2015.  The training was organised by IOM Slovenia.
