Did you know there is a new digital web app which aims to support better health outcomes for people living with Down syndrome?
The My Voice My Health app was designed by Down Syndrome Western Australia, using funding provided by the Department of Communities through the Independent Advocacy grants program. The app is a resource hub that provides information about the health considerations of people with Down syndrome. My Voice My Health provides:
- information sourced from Australia and around the world on health topics that are relevant to people with Down syndrome;
- lists of public health providers, peak bodies and not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia that may provide support for a variety of these health conditions; and
- resources specifically developed for health professionals to consider when a person with Down syndrome is a patient, such as health checklists, and communication tips for people who are working with a person with Down syndrome or developmental disability.
