Being a refugee is a challenging experience. The issues refugees suffer prior to arriving in the resettlement country have a lot of impact on their daily life. Political corruption and insecurity in areas of conflict create a state of mistrust towards the authorities. This mistrust continues in the host country and has very obvious effects in trusting healthcare providers.
