ISDH Refugee Health Program

To support the resettlement of refugees by providing access and resources for an initial health screening upon arrival to the United States and by identifying emerging health issues in refugee populations, and to provide ongoing support through relationships with community, state and federal partners.

Every refugee in Indiana receives an initial health screening within 90 days of US arrival and referral to a medical home.


  • Develop a holistic approach to refugee health, including all departments at ISDH with interactions in the refugee community
  • Develop relationships across the state with other organizations involved in refugee health and resettlement

We do not work alone. The ISDH Refugee Health Program works in collaboration with national, state, and local agencies, voluntary resettlement agencies (VOLAGs), and many other organizations to continue in the work of providing comprehensive care to Indiana’s refugee communities.
