Global Michigan - Refugee Services announces funding opportunity for Refugee Medical Screening program

The Office of Global Michigan seeks proposals for Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, and Macomb County for the federally required refugee medical screening program.

The selected provider will ensure a comprehensive medical screening to newly arrived refugees to ensure communicable diseases of public health importance and other health issues are recognized and treated. They will also oversee administration of immunizations as necessary and make referrals to local health care providers for follow-up. Medical screenings must be initiated within 30 days and be completed in no more than 90 days after the refugee's U.S. arrival. A domestic health screening form will be provided, and all medical screening data must be entered into the Michigan Disease Surveillance System (MDSS). Close collaboration and partnerships with the local refugee resettlement agencies is essential. The resettlement agencies will refer clients for the medical screening.
