Edition 9 – Refugee Health

Edition 9, Refugee Health

Many refugees entering the United States do not posses the same standard of health that most of its citizens do. This edition highlights the challenges surrounding refugee health and references issues including financial constraints, the difficulties in setting up sustainable systems to improve resettlement success, the importance of understanding refugee healthcare needs and the context in which they developed, and the need to address health issues of solitary minors entering the United States even as they resolve their immigration status. At HPHR, we realize the importance of addressing these challenges for a healthier society.
