A refugee is a person who was forced to leave their country. Whether it be from warfare or natural disaster, their homes are no longer safe to live in, so they need to relocate elsewhere. Once someone sets foot on the journey of becoming a refugee, they become vulnerable and dependent with no sense of what the future will bring. In an attempt to accommodate them, first world countries with the resources necessary to assist these refugees, are struggling to determine whether or not they should step-in and help. Some argue that taking them in could come with excessive consequences, while others believe they could be assets. Although there may be a few consequences, they are outweighed by the benefits and undeniable severity of the situation.
There are several hindrances that immigrant’s population encounter when they migrated to a new country. For sure, obtaining a good quality of health care is one of the most difficulties that the immigrants will be faced in the new country due to several reasons such as language barrier, cultural beliefs and lack of education. These elements could absolutely complicate the medical system. One of the immigrant population who began to migrate gradually to the United States in the 18th century is the Hmong. They arrived in the United States with their traditional customs. Hmong culture, in general, is entirely different from the way of life in the United States. In particularly, Hmong’s health care has completely different systems of health in the America. Their health care depends extremely on their traditional beliefs which are seeing illness as animism matter. On the other hand, the Western medical system is rationalism that means the medical system relies primarily on biomedical beliefs. As I result, the contrast between Hmong traditional beliefs and Western biomedical beliefs built a lack of understanding of both sides
Somebody that is forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster is a refugee. There are over 2.3 million Syrian refugees and of those, 45 of them made their home in the united states. In years to come the U.S. will be bringing in more refugees. Most of these refugees do not have any bad intentions when coming to the U.S., but are just looking for a home so they can start to rebuild their life. In order to be brought in, refugees must first go through a security screening.
Should america let refugees in the us. I think that refugees should not be allowed in the usa and they should be kicked out of the us because nearly 44% of america are non english speakers that used to be18% so non english speakers are slowly over powering us americans and they will soon kick us out of our country we should kick them out and keep them out for america's sake.
Through her research, Leininger established an outline to further explain the importance of culturally competent care and the challenges presented throughout societies and healthcare institutions. The most obvious need for cultural sensitivity is the ongoing immigration throughout the world. As more people from different parts of the world enter into one area, different cultures will be present. The people that migrate to a new region or country will have the expectation that respect will be shown for their beliefs, particularly in the healthcare setting. This includes the use of technological advances in medicine. Some cultures may not understand or trust the delivery of care that is based on new technology (Andrews & Boyle, 2016).
The Interim Federal Health Plan of Canada [IFHP] sets out a guideline of specific healthcare costs that the government of Canada covers for refugees, protected persons and victims of human trafficking. The IFHP was implemented into Canada’s system in 1957, and was responsible for financing refugee health care in Canada until drastic changes to the program were implemented. When policies are implemented beyond the control of a vulnerable population such as the refugees, it is important we understand the implications of such changes and what that means for the health of the refugee population. The question stemming from this health issue is what can nursing leaders do to address the health inequities posed to the refugee
The thesis of this article is how immigrants and refugees experience stress and mental health issues when permanently migrating to another country and how medical professionals attempt to identify and address the issues. When immigrants and refugees lack social acceptance, alienation, rejection and other adversities they are subjected to mental and psychological issues during the experience of migrating.
According to UNHCR, a refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so. War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries. When people flee their own country, and seek sanctuary in another country, they apply for asylum – the right to be recognized as a refugee and receive legal protection and material assistance. An asylum seeker must demonstrate that his or her fear of persecution in his or her home country is
The US has been heavily involved with the Middle East since before WWII. However, the later history of US and Middle East relations is the most important in understanding why hate crimes against refugees may happen currently. The first major intervention after WWII was in the mid 1940’s with Iran and the Soviet Union. After Stalin had broken the Tripartite Treat of January 1942 by failing to withdrawal troops from Iran, President Truman threatened to send American troops into the Middle East. Truman also had contact with Shah Pahlavi, the current leader of Iran, and advised him to use force in order to alleviate Soviet problems such as separatists groups within Iran. After this situation, President Truman established the Truman Doctrine which
In 2012, Canada received approximately 23,000 refugees and their families (Statistics Canada, 2012). Canada welcomes an ethno cultural diversity and follows the international mandate to ensure safety, stability and accessibility to health services for refugees. The refugees come from different countries, which are socioeconomically unstable, and they are in search of stability and a better destiny. Canada is recognized as one of the most developed countries in the world, it is undeniable that the protection of refugees will be provided. The Ottawa Newcomer Clinic, located in Ottawa, is one of the agencies that welcomes newcomer refugees. This clinic plays an essential role in the reintegration of refugees in their new environment and provides preventive healthcare services. To improve its services, the team members of the clinic are committed to promoting mental health in order to undertake a holistic approach in the care of refugee youths. Consequently, it is important to explore the obstacles facing this particular population using the Population Health model in order to identify startegies for mental health promotion programs that aims to optimize the health status of refugee youths. This brings us to review the importance of mental health among refugees and concepts involved, such as importance of the role of health care providers who have direct contact with the target population as well as mental health promotion.
Are you a refugee? Refugees are people who escape violence from another country. Like war or poverty. Refugees live in the worst conditions. Some make their homes out of abandoned buildings, or makeshift tents, and others just move to another country.
This topic and literature review will not encompass a hypothesis due to the purpose of this review which is to determine areas of improvement for the health issues facing this population. The use of this study is to explore and improve the negative stigmas associated with the individuals who are in desperate need of care to other healthcare professionals. Increased tolerance of the nation to cultural differences will improve health statuses for all by eliminating social stigmas and reducing the burden of illness for all.
A refugee is defined as person who escaped or migrate from his or her country where is war, persecution, natural disasters, or anything that makes their life miserable or impossible to live in that country. I believe that refugees are the individuals who go through a very tough and difficult times and situations in their lives that are surely inescapable. Even though, these individuals are able to escape their countries, they are divided into lives. They have to live this split life for as long as they are alive. The refugees from Syria are the ones who have been all over the news lately.
Let’s start by defining what it is to be a refugee. A refugee is any citizen of a nation who is forced to flee due to persecution or unsafe living conditions.
A refugee is defined as an individual who has been forced to leave their country due to political or religious reasons, or due to threat of war or violence. There were 19.5 million refugees worldwide at the end of 2014, 14.4 million under the mandate of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), around 2.9 million more than in 2013. The other 5.1 million Palestinian refugees are registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). With the displacement of so many people, it is difficult to find countries willing to accept all the refugees. There are over 125 different countries that currently host refugees, and with this commitment comes the responsibility of ensuring these refugees have access to
