Culturally and linguistically diverse health

Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) is a broad and inclusive umbrella term for communities with diverse language, ethnic background, nationality, dress, traditions, spiritual and religious beliefs and practices.

Pegasus Health acknowledges the strengths of CALD communities, and how culture, language, identity and life experiences contribute to health and wellbeing.

Pegasus, along with other primary health organisations (PHOs) and organisations, works to respond to the diversity of each individual and community in Waitaha Canterbury, and provide equitable access to health services that respond to CALD communities’ needs.

Some of the services Pegasus offers:

  • Use of professional interpreter services or bilingual providers
  • Cultural competency training for health care providers
  • Use of linguistically and culturally appropriate health education materials.

The CALD Health Advisory Group is a Waitaha-wide health reference group, consisting of representatives of primary care organisations, clinicians, community members, and Health New Zealand | Te Whatu Ora. 

The group advises the Waitaha health system on ways to be responsive to the needs of CALD communities, and intends to be a link between CALD communities and the Canterbury health system.
