Standards for health services in Australian immigration detention centres

Appropriate health care is a basic human right in any civil society, and the RACGP has long advocated that all people living in Australia should have access to high quality primary health care.

In 2006, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) sought the RACGP’s assistance to develop standards for health services in immigration detention centres.

The Standards for health services in Australian immigration detention centres were released in 2007.
