The refugee health profiles found on this page provide key health and cultural information for specific refugee groups resettling in the United States. Information is gathered from the World Health Organization (WHO), International Organization for Migration (IOM), the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), US Department of State, and other sources to provide information that will help resettlement agencies, clinicians, and public health providers facilitate appropriate medical screening and interventions for refugee groups.

Each profile has six components:

  • Priority Health Conditions
  • Background
  • Population Movements
  • HealthCare and Conditions in Camps and/or Urban Settings
  • Medical Screening of U.S.-bound Refugees
  • Post-Arrival Medical Screening
  • Health Information
