How we engage with refugee communities on strategic, national & local settlement issues

• Conduct HNA, research and evaluation • Community-led partnerships (RASNZ; NZAF African; ARPHS, RHSS etc) • Tailored and targeted models of service delivery • Refugee consumer voice in health planning and service development • Community empowerment models

The ARPHS- RHSS is the national screening service for quota refugees to NZ. The service covers the greater Auckland region. Public health plays a major role in supporting and strengthening healthy communities including refugees and new migrants. The Refugee Health and Screening Service provides information, education, communicable diseases control, health protection and health promotion.

The Refugee Health and Screening Service works in partnership with many health providers and communities to provide culturally appropriate and acceptable care.
