Refugee Health

Florida Department of Health in Flagler County

The Florida Department of Health in Flagler County is a proud participant of the State's Refugee Health Program. 

The program's goal is to provide culturally sensitive health services to persons who have fled their home country due to persecution (political, religious, or economic) in search for a better life and self-sufficiency in the U.S. The Refugee Health Program reviews overseas medical examination records and provides health assessments and immunizations to refugees to enhance personal health status and protect Florida’s public health. The services, funded through the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and the Florida Department of Children and Families, Refugee Services, are available to refugees, asylees, Cuban/Haitian asylum applicants, Cuban/Haitian entrants, Amerasians, Iraqi/Afghan special immigrants, and certain victims of severe forms of human trafficking.

The mission of Tuberculosis and Refugee Health is to eliminate tuberculosis as a public health threat in Florida; and ensure appropriate public health screenings of all newly arriving refugees.
