Talking about health and experiences of using health services with people from refugee backgrounds
The Talking About Health Project was conducted by the Victorian Refugee Health Network from July 2015 – July 2016. The objectives of the project were to:
- Create opportunities for under-represented groups to provide advice about their health priorities and experiences of using health services.
- Combine information from consultations with refugee-background communities to inform the work of the Network and help ensure that we are responsive to refugee community concerns.
- To document the process and findings from the project into a publicly-available report to share with Victorian health services and policy-makers.
The Project was overseen by a Project Advisory Group comprising bicultural workers with expertise in community engagement and experience working with communities from refugee backgrounds. See the Project Advisory Group Members and Terms of Reference.
The Final Report was launched at the Network’s Primary Care Forum on 6 September 2016.
