Refugee Health Assessment

Full medical exam for refugees eligible for Office of Refugee Resettlement benefits

Description

Trained medical professionals provide a health exam to refugees, and other eligible new arrivals to Minnesota, that may identify and treat health problems that could interfere with resettlement activities.

Minnesota's Refugee and International Health Program partners with local health departments, private health care providers, and community organizations to offer each new refugee arrival a comprehensive screening examination, appropriate follow-up or referral, and community-based health education.
