Innovation in Refugee Health

         

Thank you for supporting the Innovations in Refugee Health Program

The world is facing a global refugee crisis, with an estimated 65.3 million people forcefully displaced from their homes due to war, famine, natural disaster and political unrest. Refugees often experience significant trauma, suffer from complex physical and mental health issues, and lack access to quality healthcare services.

Calgary’s first specialized refugee health clinic, the Calgary Refugee Health Program launched in 2003, and partnered with the Mosaic Primary Care Network in 2013 to create the Mosaic Refugee Health Clinic (MRHC). With one of Canada’s most successfully integrated refugee health programs, the MRHC in Calgary has cared for nearly 9000 refugees and their families since 2011. In 2017 Calgary was chosen as one of four Canadian cities to resettle Yazidi refugee families from Northern Iraq and Syria previously captured by the extremist group ISIS — which, due to their severe trauma, requires intensive care and coordination among many health services.

Donated funds will support the design, implementation, evaluation and refinement of innovative refugee care programs that improve the quality, efficiency and cost effectiveness of refugee healthcare in our community. We aim to help refugee newcomers achieve health so they can participate fully as members of our society.
