Better links, better life for older Vietnamese Australians


“Better links, better life for older Vietnamese Australians” project is funded by the Department of Health and Ageing. The purpose of this program is help to raise the awareness of health and aged care services among the Vietnamese people in Australia, and bridge the gaps between the older Vietnamese population and the aged care services in Victoria. This also acts as a gateway to introduce information and services provided in the health and aged care spectrum, linking the Vietnamese community to non-government organisations, city councils, states and Federal departments.

The information about aged care services have been introduced to the Vietnamese community via newspapers, radio stations, and AVWA's website. In addition, Australian Vietnamese Women's Association also organized some information sessions with the senior groups to help them to have an overview of the services being offered and how to use those services effectively.
