Who We Are

The Society of Refugee Healthcare Providers works to improve how North America approaches refugee, asylee and immigrant health and reduce health disparities through: educating health providers, connecting professionals for integrated refugee and immigrant health initiatives, and advocating change at individual, institutional, and governmental levels.

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.

Fast Facts

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.
