Refugee Care Resources Available

April 7, 2016

New online resources have been created on the Island Health website for physicians, refugee sponsors and settlement workers to help Syrian refugees who are settling on Vancouver Island.


A Newcomer Clinical Care Pathway is also now available. It is a primary care resource for Vancouver Island physicians providing care for Syrian refugees. The document includes recommendations for screening and care, community resources, and information about the Interim Federal Health insurance program coverage and billing registration for physicians.

Newcomer and Refugee Care website: www.viha.ca/professionals/refugee-care/ 

Please share this information with your physician colleagues via your regular communications, newsletters etc.
