Refugee Health Program
The Refugee Health Program aims to:
- increase refugee access to primary health services
- improve how health services respond to refugees’ needs
- coordinate a response to newly arrived refugees
- help individuals, families and refugee communities improve their health and wellbeing.
The program is delivered by community health services (CHSs), and employs community health nurses, allied health professionals and assistants, and bicultural workers. The nurses and other health professionals have expertise in working with culturally and linguistically diverse and marginalised communities.
