Project description

The project focuses on the valorisation and dissemination of a multilingual app that allows primary care providers to communicate accessibly with foreign-speaking parents who understand little or no Dutch. The app provides health information in 6 different languages (Dutch, English, French, Farsi, Turkish and Arabic) and supports caregivers in demand-driven consultations. The app improves access to quality health information and ensures that foreign-speaking parents of young children can better understand and use the information.
