Research has been conducted by the University of Adelaide, in conjunction with Monash University, The University of Sydney and the South Australian Department of Health, to investigate the effects of very hot weather on the wellbeing of migrants and refugees. Identified in the study was the need for better access for people of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds to information regarding keeping safe during periods of extreme heat. A set of easy to read fact sheets has been developed. These have been designed specifically for CALD communities and are available in various languages, including Arabic, Amharic, Chinese, Dinka, Farsi, Khmer, Kirundi, Nepalese, Serbian, Somali, Swahili and Tamil.
