Abstract or Description
Refugees resettling to Nebraska undeniably have different health needs compared to native Nebraska residents. Capturing those differences is the start to catering local health care to refugees. A health needs assessment of refugees in Omaha, Nebraska seek to assess their perceived needs, barriers, and preferences regarding health care, in order to address them justly. The refugee population in Omaha, Nebraska has exponentially increased over the past decade and will continue to increase, bringing global health matters to our backyard. The data and results from surveying over 290 refugees will guide health care organizations and services to appropriately serve refugees and their specific needs.
