An International Student Health Hub was launched in Sydney on March 10 to support overseas students in New South Wales.

Aimed at providing international students information on how to navigate Australia’s health care system, the Hub, launched by the International Students Consortium, will assist students accessing health services including sexual and reproductive health.

“It’s more important than ever that we give overseas students the help they need to stay healthy and enjoy their experience in Australia,” said Wa’el Sabri, Senior Community Engagement Officer at Diversity Hub and Co-leader of the International Students Consortium.
“Navigating our health care system remains a big challenge to most people including our international students. The Hub will provide the international students with a ‘one stop shop’  for all sexual health information needs and enable health care services to work together to enhance the student experience in NSW,” Mr Sabri said.

“Diversity Hub is proud to be one of early founding members of the consortium and be part of the effort to empower this diverse international student population. We are pleased that the consortium found our multilingual HIV website informative and gave a backlink to our site.

“We are calling on all stakeholders to support the Hub, from English language colleges, to community organisations to former international students.”
