Refugee and asylum seeker health

WWG is the only primary health care clinic in Brisbane that specialises in refugee and asylum seeker health. Our team has a high level of expertise in:

Asylum seeker health

We have seen thousands of asylum seekers for essential health care and we continue to provide services when asylum seekers experience Medicare ineligibility.  We also provide groceries and personal care items to asylum seekers when they get cut off from their supports such as case management, income support and Medicare.  We work with homelessness prevention services whenever possible but unfortunately a growing proportion of our asylum seeker clients are now homeless.

For more information about the plight of asylum seekers in Australia, refer to this recent article.
