Boat RacersThe Canadian Collaboration for Immigrant and Refugee Health (CCIRH), is a six year old interdisciplinary collaboration involving over 150 primary care practitioners, specialists, researchers, immigrant community leaders, and policy makers, that shines an evidence-based lens on the emerging new discipline of migrant health.

CCIRH has developed practical evidence-based recommendations to help practitioners effectively meet the unfamiliar health needs of newly arriving immigrants and refugees.
“More work must be done to improve immigrants’ access to health services,”
“We hope this evidence-based initiative will provide a foundation for improved health care for immigrant populations.”
The CCIRH Knowledge Exchange Network is newly launched!

CCIRH Phase II will focus on identifying and supporting evidence-based practices that can improve the delivery of primary health care for vulnerable migrant populations. The CCIRH KEN is a knowledge translation project aimed at improving the health of immigrants and refugees. It is designed to provide practical evidence-based recommendations and high quality education resources to primary care practitioners and medical students, immigrant community champions and health advocates, and health and immigration policymakers.
