Information gathered from the World Health Organization (WHO), International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), US Department of State, and other sources is provided to help resettlement agencies, clinicians, and public health providers facilitate medical screening and interventions appropriate for each refugee group.
Each profile has six components:
- priority health conditions
- population movements
- health care and nutrition in camps/urban settings
- medical screening of US-bound refugees
- health information
