When refugees arrive in New Zealand they are accommodated at the Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre (MRRC) for an orientation to prepare them for life in a new country.
During their orientation a Refugee Health Screening Service (RHSS) identifies and treats any personal health conditions that may affect a person’s resettlement.
Further information about health services and screening for refugees is available from Te Whatu Ora - Health NZ, who fund the RHSS.
Auckland Regional Public Health Service ceased being the RHSS provider on 30 June 2020.
