Languages and Cultural Knowledge in Global Healthcare


This event will demonstrate some of the crucial roles played by multilingualism and cultural knowledge in tackling global health challenges, at home and abroad.  A representative from the 'Multilingualism and Cognition' project will present an overview of their research on the benefits of multilingualism for tackling cognitive challenges such as autism, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia. Then, researchers and practitioners, including from Médecins sans frontières, will explain how understandings of health and well-being in overseas countries are enhanced by drawing on local languages and idioms. The event will conclude by outlining the opportunities available for those with a knowledge of languages and global cultures to contribute - as practitioners, health promoters, project coordinators, researchers, heads of mission, translators and interpreters, among others - to the many challenges of international healthcare.
