The NSW Health Policy and Implementation Plan for Healthy Culturally Diverse Communities 2012-2016 is the strategic statewide policy for improving the health of NSW residents from backgrounds which are culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse. The Policy and Implementation Plan takes advantage of evidence about multicultural health amassed over the last decade and, drawing on state level policy requirements, sets the NSW Government's multicultural health policy direction over the next five years. This Policy and Plan serves as NSW Health's multicultural forward plan under the NSW Multicultural Policies and Services Program.
