Ezidi Refugee Video Resources

To help address some of the challenges faced by the Ezidi community, HealthWISE, funded by the Hunter New England Primary Health Network, developed a series of short videos that explain various aspects of the Australian healthcare system, spoken in the Ezidi language, Kurdish/Kurmanji.

The videos cover a range of health topics, such as Medicare, IPTAAS, Emergency and Ambulance services, Patient expectations and informed consent, Treatment options and Patient responsibilities. The videos are animated with simple to understand pictures, and include English sub-titles to assist with English word recognition.

HealthWISE Ezidi videos

In an effort to keep the Ezidi community informed about services and laws surrounding domestic and family violence, HealthWISE was commissioned by the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) and Armidale Women’s Shelter to help create a series of four videos focusing on this topic. 

Spoken in the Ezidi language, Kurdish/Kurmanji, the videos are animated, and include English subtitles to assist with word recognition.

This series covers the topics Domestic and Family Violence, Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders, Duty of Care and Confidentiality and Healthy Relationships.
