The Victorian Refugee Health Network (the Network) leads and is involved in a diverse range of projects every year. The work of the Network is overseen by an Executive Group, and by detailed work plans developed by the Network. The Network provides support to the health, settlement and community sector by convening working groups, developing resources, hosting forums, completing reviews of available literature, providing specialist advice and participating in practice-related research projects. More details on our current project can be seen below.
