Health and social problems of refugees.
International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Peebles (GBR), 1992/09/14.
Today over 15 million refugees are scattered around the world, most of them in poor Third World countries [New Sci., pp. 1415, September 1991]. But whether they seek'safe havens'in rich or poor countries they continue to suffer from the malaise of being uprooted, struggling to survive in new and alien environments.
Their health and social problems extend beyond the obvious emergency short-term phase.
It is now clear that the number of refugees has increased beyond expectations and most have stayed long enough to expect final resettlement in their countries of asylum, a process which requires wider, more comprehensive and long-term management and rehabilitation interventions.
