“A National Radio Dementia Awareness Program – in Community Languages” is a project of the Australian Multicultural Foundation (AMF) and a Dementia Community Support Grant Program funded through the Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing under the Dementia Initiative 2011. The AMF in collaboration with SBS radio developed the campaign to address some of the key issues and barriers to increasing the level of dementia literacy in culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The campaign delivered segments over three weeks on SBS national radio programs with a final segment a talkback session with a bilingual general practitioner. The segments were broadcast on four SBS national radio language programs including Hindi, Turkish, Arabic and Amharic.
