Multicultural Health Week has been held annually since 2009 to raise awareness of health issues experienced by culturally and linguistically diverse communities and way of addressing these issues.  Multicultural Health Week is funded by the NSW Ministry of Health (MoH) and coordinated by the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS).

Target groups for Multicultural Health Week include heath staff, culturally and linguistically diverse consumers and their communities. 

The theme for 2019 is Health Literacy of new and emerging communities. Extension of the Health Literacy theme allows for MHCS and key stakeholders to build upon work undertaken in 2018.
