African Communities and Capacity Building in Preventing Family Violence

On 17th August we continued our mission. This time we were at the African Australian communities consultation regarding Strengthening African Communities and Capacity Building in Preventing Family Violence. This an opportunity for us to also discuss the need to have health discussions in our families. This topic is often avoided and rare in some cultures. We are breaking the barriers and saying it’s ok to talk about difficult topics. We will be encouraged testing for the sickle cell gene and offered information for people affected / from risky areas.
