Initially federally funded and founded in 1995, the FGM/C program in South Australia was later absorbed by Women’s Health Statewide. In 2012, it grew to incorporate refugee women’s safety at all levels and was renamed the ‘Refugee Women’s Health and Safety Program’. The Program includes community engagement in collaboration with key refugee and immigrant services, counselling services, support (including home visits), advocacy and hospital referral services for women affected by FGM/C. Women's Health Service provides care for refugee, newly arrived migrant women and women experiencing challenging health or life issues who have significant difficulty accessing health services.
