My research aims to examine the health needs of refugee women and children and to articulate social work’s role in health promotion in Nakivale refugee settlement in Uganda. From a Rights based and Social Work perspective, I will investigate the state of health for refugee women and children (vulnerability, increased risk and their strengths); identify their entitlements to health care (policies); investigate access to and utilization of health services; articulate gaps; and suggest mediations to engender human development.
