dc.description.abstractAustralia currently accepts over 13,000 refugee entrants each year. A refugee is a person who, “owing to a well founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside of the country of his nationality and is unable or owing to such fear is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country”. An asylum seeker is a person seeking protection as a refugee but whose claim is still being reviewed. The application process may take considerable time. Refugees are provided with the same rights to healthcare as other Australian permanent residents, however asylum seekers have complex visa conditions and not all are eligible to use Medicare funded services. This RESEARCH ROUNDup examines the health needs and associated primary health care challenges for refugees and asylum seekers in Australia.en
