Resettling in America: Georgia’s Refugee Communities
July 13 – December 31, 2015
For decades, refugee health has been a focus of CDC’s work. Public health, including basic health services and broader surveillance and epidemiological activities, intersects with all stages of the refugee experience. CDC protects the public’s health by promoting and improving the health of refugees, immigrants, and migrants who are coming to the United States, and applies public health and epidemiological science to reduce the health impact of diseases and emergencies on populations and to strengthen the recovery of health systems in these settings.
