Health Needs Assessment (HNA) Toolkit
A health needs assessment helps organizations identify gaps in health services, resources and health outcomes and use the information to plan and implement programs and services to increase health equity and improve the overall health and well-being of the community.
Now, organizations can conduct their own health needs assessments with our toolkit, created in partnership with the International Rescue Committee.
Mental Health Toolkit
Afghan people who are forced to leave their country and start over in a new place have great strength and bravery. It is also a very difficult thing to do. It is common for people who have experienced difficult things to have feelings like fear, anger, sadness and sorrow at the same time that they feel relieved or glad to be safe.
This collection of health communications, promising practices, checklists, guides, and training opportunities will help any organization improve their efforts to support Afghan newcomers as they navigate the complicated emotions and stressors that come with migration.
