Refugees from Somalia, Iran and Afghanistan in the Netherlands: health over time after resettlement

Little is known about how resettlement impacts health of refugees in Europe, and more specifically, which factors contribute to physical and mental health improvements of refugees after resettling in a West European country.

This study tried to fill the gap in evidence on the course of health and health care utilisation after resettlement.
