Refugee Health Assessment Program

For more information send us an email or phone 619-692-8611.

The Refugee Health Assessment Program (RHAP) is funded by the State of California and provides newly arrived refugees, asylees, victims of trafficking, and other eligible entrants with culturally and linguistically appropriate comprehensive health assessments, including follow-up and referrals for health conditions identified in the assessment process within the first three months of their arrival to San Diego County. This program is implemented by the County Public Health Services, TB Control and Refugee Health Branch.

The Refugee Health Program partners with various communities and organizations to address health concerns affecting newly arriving refugee groups. A description of our services and associated links are provided below.
