Abstract

Often coming from refugee camps, Eritrean refugees arrive with pre-existing conditions, and limited understanding of their overall health and when they come to the U.S, they are faced with many barriers that prevent them from having quality health experience. Using semi-structured, one-on-one interviews, this study aimed to arrive at a comprehensive understanding of Eritrean refugees’ healthcare experiences, and how those experiences impact the ways in which they perceive and use the services that are available to them. This research is intended to help providers gain insights into the needs of this group as expressed by healthcare-seekers themselves.
