Request for statistics on mortality for refugees

衞生署 did not have the information requested.

Dear Department of Health,

Do you have mortality and morbidity rate data for non-refoulement (refugees/form-8 holder, or however you recognize the ~14,000 asylum seekers in Hong Kong) claimants using the Hong Kong compared to the Hong Kong population. Particularly statistics for women and children, but any health statistics of this population would be useful.

If you do not have this data then any advice on which government department does would be useful.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Dear Mr Edmunds,

Thank you for your email dated 29.7.2019, I regret to inform you that the
