Refugee Health

Refugee Health

The Refugee Health Program works to protect and promote the health of refugees from the time they arrive in Vermont through a community-based system of care. We collaborate with partners to make sure that refugees have the health screenings they need, and to help them integrate into the health care system so that their health and wellness needs are met. We provide translated information on important public health and safety topics and Health Department services in a number of languages spoken in Vermont. See translated information

Our Partners

We build partnerships with community health providers to ensure refugees have a domestic health screening after arriving in the United States. We collaborate with primary care providers and specialists to help refugees link to care. We build relationships and facilitate communication among providers and other health services to help refugees live healthy lives in Vermont communities.

Our partners in refugee health include the USCRI (U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants), AALVCommunity Health Centers of BurlingtonUniversity of Vermont Medical Center, and the State Refugee Office
