Independent Health Advice Panel

20 February 2019
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) has received a request from the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs (the Minister) regarding the establishment of an Independent Health Advice Panel (IHAP) tasked ‘to monitor, assess and report on the physical and mental health of transitory persons who are in regional processing countries and the standard of health services provided to them’. (Home Affairs Legislation Amendment [Miscellaneous Measures] Bill 2019).
The RANZCP is currently working with College members with an identified interest in the area to facilitate the development of a list of nominees for Board approval. As required, 10 nominees will be provided for consideration by the Minister, for at least one appointment to the IHAP.
