    • Refugee and Asylum Seeker Health Initiative, UCSF
      The Refugee and Asylum seeker Health Initiative (RAHI) encompasses and oversees all clinical and academic endeavors related to refugee and asylee health within the UCSF system.  Our goal is to make refugee and asylee health a recognized priority, to improve quality of care of these individuals, and to foster education and academic activity in this field.  The committee is multidisciplinary, including current members of UCSF faculty, staff, Global health Core and faculty affiliates, Survivors International, Newcomers Program, Department of Public Health, UC Consortium, asylum evaluators, interested students and house-staff, legal consultants, refugee resettlement agencies, and prominent members of the community.  We provide support and expertise in clinical endeavors, develop house-staff and medical student curriculum, and encourage academic research and publications in refugee health.  Community education, social activism, and raising awareness are important priorities within the initiative.  We are committed to expanding the knowledge base and literature on refugee health in order to foster evidence-based practice within the field.
