Abstract

The objective of this study was to understand the Burmese Chin refugees' experiences with and perspectives on the United States healthcare system. Using a mixed-methods study design, a survey was distributed and focus groups were conducted. Thirty-seven surveys were completed. Five major themes emerged from the focus group discussions: time, language barriers, relationships with healthcare providers, traditional medicine, and adolescents'roles in their community. Refugee healthcare perspectives give health providers insights on how to work towards providing culturally appropriate care.
