Finding a job and access to health care have been named as the two biggest challenges facing women with a migrant or refugee background when settling in Australia, a major survey has found. 

The Harmony Alliance survey, conducted in partnership with SBS, also found 71 per cent of respondents had a positive view of Australia.

More than three-quarters of respondents had worked in the last 12 months and were somewhat, or very satisfied with their employment.

But many said they struggled to get job interviews, despite being qualified for the roles.
