Consultations with Women from Migrant and Refugee Backgrounds and Practitioner Roundtable

The Australian Migrant Resource Centre (AMRC) and the Migrant and Refugee Women’s Health Partnership auspiced by the Migration Council Australia (MCA) partnered to host two consultation sessions featuring women from Arabic speaking and refugee backgrounds, in addition to a practitioner roundtable.

Both sessions were held as part of the MCA’s National CALD Women’s Health Initiative, which aims to work in conjunction with clinicians, health care services and health practitioners to recognise and respond effectively to the culturally diverse health care requirements of migrant and refugee women, to ensure equal access and positive outcomes. AMRC Settlement, Volunteer and Crèche Programs Manager, Michelle Dieu, expressed that: “The consultations attended by 30 women provided them with a platform to voice their health care needs and concerns, and enhanced understanding of the issues women experience in health care services.”

The practitioner roundtable was attended by allied health professionals and general practitioners, and as AMRC Chief Executive Officer Ms Eugenia Tsoulis OAM noted, “explored the challenges clinicians encounter when working with migrant and refugee women, as well as the good practice strategies that can be implemented.”
