The Victorian Refugee Health Network and the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture (Foundation House) hosted a forum on Thursday 17th May focusing on Maternal and Child Health Services engagement with refugee families. Thirty-five people attended the forum from a range of services across Victoria. There was a good geographical representation with people from all major settlement areas in Melbourne, as well as Geelong and Ballarat. There was also good representation across maternal and child health, community health services, state and local government and community health including direct service practitioners, coordinators, managers and policy makers.
These are some of the workshops notes and the evaluation from that forum.
