Who We Are
Our mission is to educate, coordinate, and provide a forum for communication by which members can become more informed about best practices in refugee healthcare. The Society of Refugee Healthcare Providers is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the healthcare of refugees and asylum seekers, as well as addressing equity in healthcare. We are a dedicated group of medical providers, nurses, social workers, resettlement workers, and other professionals dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of refugees and asylum seekers.
We lead advocacy, education and networking opportunities within refugee and asylee health for members and the public. This includes our North American Refugee Health Conference, special interest committees, mentorship, research and more.
The Society is supported by dues paying, active members dedicated to our mission. We educate and connect professionals through our conferences, webinars, listserv, and special training sessions. Ultimately our goal is to touch the lives of resettled refugees and asylum seekers by our members – and professionals we support – delivering quality healthcare, equitably.
