Refugees are often more susceptible to be affected by health conditions mainly because of their geographic origin, ethnicity, conditions, as well as personal, physical and psychological conditions.
Optimal health is an important resource for people from refugee backgrounds, assisting them to deal with the practical and emotional demands of setting in Australia. Poor health, meanwhile, can serve as a significant barrier to settlement.
As well as addressing physical and mental health problems, we at Hanson Medical Centre can also contribute to a person’s psychological recovery.
Health assessments encourage complete health care and planning for future management of the patient.
At Hanson Medical Centre we ensure that we accommodate every patient’s needs. We provide clinical information, education and discussion around certain health issues in the Refugee population. Such health issues include Hepatitis, Infectious Diseases, Vitamin deficiency, mental health and chronic diseases most susceptible to this population.
