Refugee Health


All refugees resettled in the United States undergo an infectious disease screening before and after arrival, minimizing the risk of Ebola and other dangerous diseases hitching a ride to Arizona with our new refugee neighbors. For more information please visit the CDC's Ebola website.

The Arizona Refugee Health Program in the Department of Health Services works alongside the Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program in the Department of Economic Security to assist the refugees and asylees of Arizona to build happy, productive and healthy lives in the Grand Canyon State.
