Access to Health Care Services

Health care is a basic service that African refugees and immigrants are unable to access easily due to economic and language barriers. Therefore, HACI aims to create access to affordable health care service for its clients through working in partnership with government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, and private companies. Major activities to be undertaken soon include:

·      Inviting experts who are working in the areas of health services to participate in information sessions so that our clients can be aware of the health services landscape in the DC Metropolitan Area

·      Identifying health institutions that are willing to provide free medical care to our clients

·      Screening clients that need affordable medical assistance

·      Establishing referral linkages with health institutions that are willing to provide affordable medical services to our clients

·      Referral and following up with the healthcare facility and/or with the client
