  1. Afghan health education project : a community survey.

    Article - En anglais

    This study assessed the health concerns and needs for health education in the Afghan refugee and immigrant community of the San Francisco Bay Area.

    The study used a telephone survey, seven community meetings and a survey administered to 196 Afghan families through face-to-face interviews.

    Data were analyzed qualitatively and statistically.

    Health problems of most concern are mental health problems and stress related to past refugee trauma and loss, current occupational and economic problems, and culture conflict.

    Physical health problems include heart disease, diabetes and dental problems.

    Needed health education topics include dealing with stress, heart health, nutrition, raising children in the United States (particularly adolescents), aging in the United States, and diabetes.

    Using coalition building and involving Afghans in their community assessment, we found that the Afghan community is eager for culture-and language-appropriate health education programs through videos, television, lectures, and written materials.

    Brief health education talks in community meetings and a health fair revealed enthusiasm and willingness to consider health promotion and disease-prevention practices.
