Our Refugee Health Team supports people from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds living in the Eastern Region of Victoria and includes Refugee Health Nurses, Specialist GP’s and support through our community #health services – Dental, Family Counselling, Child Development, AOD and Youth services. We also work with external agencies that include the Migrant Information Centre, local councils, schools and Eastern Health.
