Refugee Health Programs


What health programs are available to refugees?

In addition to Refugee Medical Assistance, Wisconsin also offers the:

  • Refugee Health Screening Program; and
  • Refugee Health Promotion Program.


Wisconsin has a State Refugee Health Coordinator (SRHC) who oversees these programs. The SHRC also works with the federal Center of Disease Control and Prevention to ensure timely health assessment and prevention care to newly arriving refugees.  


Where can I find more information about these programs?
