Event description
In this year's Ethnic Minorities Health Symposium, we explore the health status of EMs and the opportunities they have in career choice.

About this event

Theme of the year:

Health Equity through upstream interventions and strategies - can a career path leading to the healthcare and social care sector be a solution?

We aim at...

  1. Raising awareness in considering upstream interventions than just handling risk behaviours or the illness itself
  2. Opening up more possibilities for EM youths in healthcare and social care related careers in the labour market
  3. Recognising the relationship between the lack of EM healthcare workers or the expertise in the system and poor health outcome of EM in Hong Kong
  4. Push forward changes in the current service systems targeting the EM community
    • mandatory medical and legal interpretation in the respective context
    • provision of interpretation services in social services
    • facilitate women groups in using public leisure and recreational facilities

Keynote speakers include...

  • Prof. EK Yeoh
  • Department of Health
  • Share with friends
