Multilingual Interpreters Saving Lives in Western Australia

According to Wikipedia, there are 17 Aboriginal languages spoken in the state of Western Australia, and for many speakers of those languages, English is a second or third language. The inability to communicate in English results in poor medical care, and to address this issue, the government has signed an agreement with Aboriginal Interpreting WA to provide interpreters, as explained in an article by ABC.

It is hoped that these interpreting services will make healthcare a more pleasant experience while better addressing health issues, leading to better health among local residents.
