Refugee Health Information Network now HealthReach

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

The Refugee Health Information Network (RHIN) was a national collaborative partnership whose principal focus was to create and make available a database of quality multilingual/multicultural, public health resources to professionals providing care to resettled refugees and asylees. In October, 2014, NLM (SIS) broadened the scope of RHIN by rebranding it HealthReach. This was done to better meet the needs of the diverse non-English and English as a second language speaking audiences. HealthReach continues to recognize the importance of providing refugee and asylee specific information while expanding the information provided to meet the needs of most immigrant populations. Over the next several months we will be adding new resources and reaching out to stakeholders. Please use the new Twitter hand @NLM_HealthReach and use the new URL http://healthreach.nlm.nih.gov. We will be transferring from the .org to .gov site in the next several months. You will notice there isn’t much change between the old RHIN and the new HealthReach – this was intentional to help with the continuity of service through the transition. We appreciate any feedback you have!/da
