Many refugee communities and survivors of trafficking living in Malaysia are unable to access healthcare.
The majority of the patients we treat in mobile clinics for refugees are unregistered refugees, mainly Rohingya.
Our teams provide medical screenings and outpatient consultations in government shelters for victims of human trafficking. We’ve established up a primary healthcare clinic in a Penang neighbourhood where migrants from many countries have settled, and have developed a strong network with fishermen communities and local authorities in Langkawi, a known migrant disembarkation site.
A limited number of NGOs, including MSF, can refer asylum claims to the refugee agency based on a set of additional vulnerability criteria.
