World Skin Health Day – Caring for the Skin You’re In

14 Oct, 2022 | News

Chronic skin, hair and nail conditions are more than skin deep. They change the way people live their lives.

Finding the best possible treatment and support can make a big difference. The Australasian College of Dermatologists will be celebrating World Skin Health Day 2022 on 14 October with the launch of new community language podcasts and social media campaign themed Caring for the Skin You’re In.

 

Caring for the Skin You’re In aims to encourage Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to seek help for chronic skin, hair and nail conditions.

 

The Caring for the Skin You’re In podcasts aim to improve access to information and feature interviews with dermatologists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Recorded in English, Cantonese, Korean, Spanish, Hindi, Arabic, Turkish and Persian, the dermatologists discuss the impact of skin, hair and nail conditions, and how to access reliable information, help and support.

The Caring for the Skin You’re In podcasts were developed as part of the Speak My Language (Disability) program funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services and proudly delivered by Ethnic Communities Council of New South Wales in partnership with all State and Territory Ethnic and Multicultural Communities’ Councils across Australia.

Living with skin, hair and nail conditions can be challenging. Finding the best possible treatment and support can make a huge difference. Yet fear of stigma, social isolation, language and cultural barriers mean people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds can face additional challenges accessing help. In new community language
podcasts from ACD and Speak My Language (Disability), dermatologists discuss how to access reliable information, help and support.
