Refugee Health Screening

Washington’s Refugee Health Screening program, in partnership with local health jurisdictions, health providers, and refugee resettlement agencies, provides a comprehensive health screening exam to all new refugees.

The purpose of the health exam is to:

  • Follow up on any conditions identified in the overseas medical examination.
  • Identify and treat persons with communicable diseases to reduce the spread of infectious disease.
  • To identify conditions that may adversely impact a person’s ability to become self-sufficient.
