Child Drown

The NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) was commissioned by Kids Health at the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network-Westmead in 2012 to conduct formative research towards the development of a campaign to raise awareness of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities on the dangers of portable pools and the regulations to fence portable pools.

Kids Health re-launched this state-wide campaign between November 2017 to March 2018 to raise water safety awareness and encourage families to take appropriate precautions when children are in or near water, with a focus on swimming pools in the home environment. MHCS created campaign resources for families and carers of children in five languages: Arabic, Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin and Vietnamese.
