Target Outreach Subcontract: Refugee Youth Health Information Project

Target Outreach Subcontract: Refugee Youth Health Information Project. This project will link health professionals and refugee youth to age- and language-appropriate health information by adapting and translating ten refugee youth health resources. The resources will address five areas of need identified by the RHP assessment: nutrition; medical visits; mental health; physical exercise; and hygiene. The assessment also revealed the lack of health programming within the resettlement agencies, which serve more than 200 refugee youth annually.
