Refugee Women's Clinic

Refugee Women's Clinic

 

MIHS’s Refugee Women’s Health Clinic center provides access to comprehensive, culturally sensitive care for refugee women in and around Phoenix.

MIHS’s Refugee Women’s Health Clinic is the only one of its kind nationwide dedicated to reaching out to the underserved. We support the mission of refugee resettlement – which is to promote self-sufficiency in newly-arrived populations.

Our Mission
The main purpose of the Refugee Women’s Health Clinic is to provide culturally grounded and language appropriate health services to the growing refugee and immigrant community in the Phoenix metropolitan area, while working to reduce/eliminate health inequalities and cultural barriers to care.


Our Patients
Since opening in 2008, the clinic has enhanced the access to culturally-skilled women’s healthcare by providing more than 8,000 obstetric and gynecological appointments, with high levels of patient satisfaction and return for repeat services. Patients have come from 49 different countries speaking more than 41 different languages.


Our Programs 
In addition to health services, the clinic’s monthly educational classes help soon-to-be moms better plan for childbirth and the care of their newborn. Through grant funding opportunities, the clinic has also provided specialty educational programs such as physical activity and nutrition classes, breast cancer and mammography awareness-raising activities and sexual health education focus groups.
