Everyone's health, in good hands

Healthcare workers have to increasingly care for patients from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

Through this programme, we promote intercultural mediation in the area of health as an effective means of improving communication between professionals and users from diverse cultural backgrounds. 

This programme trains and supports the network of intercultural healthcare mediators in Catalonia, via a collaboration agreement between "la Caixa" Foundation" and the Department of Health of the Catalan government.

The collaboration allows us to:

  • Improve the management of cultural diversity in healthcare.

  • Offer continued training to professionals in intercultural mediation in the area of healthcare. Between 2008 and 2015 we have carried out more than 93,000 individual mediation actions.
