The refugee health profiles found on this page provide key health and cultural information for specific refugee groups resettling to the United States. Information is gathered from the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the U.S. Department of State.

  • Priority health conditions
  • Background
  • Population movements
  • Healthcare and conditions in camps and/or urban settings
