The SIRC Office of Refugee Health seeks to alleviate the consequences of war, forced migration, and resettlement, address inequities, and improve the health and psychosocial wellbeing of forcibly displaced populations.
We work in partnership with refugee and forced migrant communities, health and social service providers, and interdisciplinary researchers in the Southwest and beyond to generate evidence and shape policy and practice grounded in people’s lived experiences.
