About the event

Migrant and refugee women regularly experience inequitable access to services and poorer sexual and reproductive health outcomes than non-Indigenous Australian-born women in the Australian health systems. Following the launch of the Report and ‘Act Now’ paper, we will have a facilitated panel discussion exploring some key questions and issues that the documents evoke:

  • what does the current research and data tell us about migrant and refugee women’s sexual and reproductive health?
  • what are the most pressing issues for migrant and refugee women in terms of their sexual and reproductive health?
  • what can be done to advance health equity for migrant and refugee women in Australia?

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about migrant and refugee women’s health in Australia from experts in the field.

Speakers:

Dr Nisha Khot (Former Clinical Director of Obstetrics at Djerriwarrh Health Service, RANZCOG Councillor Victoria)

Bonney Corbin (Chair of the Australian Women’s Health Network and Head of Policy at Marie Stopes Australia)

Andrea Creado (Chief Executive Officer at Ishar Multicultural Women’s Health Services, Western Australia)

Michou Kadima (Community Development Worker, Bicultural Community Health Program, Australian Red Cross, Tasmania)

This event will be facilitated by award-winning journalist, filmmaker and author, Santilla Chingaipe.
