(Under the development)
The MAH2S is a program of the CMRH that aims to connect and provide access to isolated, vulnerable, and low socioeconomic status communities with culturally appropriate healthcare services through existing partnerships and networking.
The program is categorised into three clusters that provide different health services, care, and health benefits to less than 5years and above.
The healthcare services are provided by healthcare professionals, medical or healthcare students on the internship or through drop-in charity healthcare services from partner health agencies.

Our programs are comprised of three clusters, including:
(a)Homeless and Street Healthcare Services Drop-In Services
We provide general practitioner drop-in services with our registered doctors or medical students on practice to offer a wide range of medical conditions and health issues. The CMRH services comprised of diagnosis and treatment, general practice, medical and health check-ups, health, and nutrition advice, coordinating healthcare, management of acute and chronic conditions, physical health, and general fitness (Physiotherapy, Osteopathy and Chiropractic), oral health, and Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH), and Sexually Transmissible Infections (STIs).
The program aims to provide:
- Access and inclusion of healthcare services to those affected by substance abuse and homeless or on the street while on-demand care and support.
- Overnight support care and treatment.
- Coordination of healthcare services with the other healthcare providers.
(a) Health Literacy, Education and Cancer Communication
The Centre for Migrant and Refugee Health advances a program on health literacy and cancer communication aimed to provide education awareness, knowledge and information sharing on:
- The social determinant of health.
- Cancer health literacy and cancer screening.
- Cancer communication.
Health literacy and cancer communication have been recognised as critical factors affecting communication around the range of cancer care. Health literacy and lack of knowledge have increasingly been barriers to access cancer services and improve quality of life for the patients in the new and emerging communities, including multicultural communities and culturally linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. The CALD communities with English as a second language face significant cancer communication challenges and impact cancer treatment outcomes and quality of health. Cancer patients with less or poor health literacy have a complex variety of written and oral communications that affect their understanding of cancer screening, diagnosis of symptoms and adverse effects of cancer and its various treatments.
Our program provides effective education awareness on the social determinants of health, health literacy, and cancer communication to address barriers that affect communication and understand the risks and benefits of treatment options and patient experience of informed consent for routine procedures.
We provide our program through workshops, seminars, forums, and conferences with help from our partners such as PeterMac Cancer Centre and other cancer service providers.
All cancer patients, families, and community members age 15years and above are eligible to be involved in our program, particularly men and women health in breast, cervical, prostate, and bowel screening.
