    Dear all, (repost from RCIS/AEIS)

    This email from Dr. Yusuf Ciftci of Doctors of the World is circulating with a link to multilingual pamphlets with advice about Covid 19. Currently, information is available in 21 languages, and they are continuing to add languages. *Note: some information is specific to the UK context (e.g., Dial 111), so you may have to adapt for your area.

    Dr. Ciftci is asking that these be shared with health clinics and healthcare service providers. Of course, they may also be useful in schools and language programs.



    Dear All,




    Doctors of the World are really pleased to be able to share with you the Coronavirus (Covid19) advice for patients in 21 languages, which were produced in partnership with the British Red Cross, Migrant Help and Clear Voice:  English, Albanian, Dari, French, Pashto, Portuguese, Bengali, Vietnamese, Kurdish Sorani is available at the moment, but more languages coming soon: Mandarin, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, Malayalam, Turkish, , Farsi, Amharic, Tigrinya, Somali




    Please find them here: 

    The guidance is based on the government's updated advice and health information. We really hope it will help to ensure this important guidance reaches migrant and asylum-seeking communities in the UK.




    We would be happy if you could please share these with your patients, service users and your networks widely so that we reach all communities who would like this crucial information in their own language.

    If you know someone who would find emails on this subject useful, then please do forward this to them. They can subscribe by sending an email to this link (Subscribe) with the word 'subscribe' in the subject line.




    We will replace these documents with the new ones once the NHS advice is updated, and will send you notifications. If you do not want to receive emails on this, please click (unsubscribe) and send a blank email.

    Thank you for your understanding and for any help you are able to give in sharing these resources.




    And a big thank you to Clear Voice for providing translation services quickly and pro-bono!

    Best wishes,



    Dr Yusuf Ciftci
