Refugees and migrants often face health complications due to violence, abuse and hardship suffered in wars, conflicts and during displacement from their countries. Many live in communities, overcrowded remote camps or on the outskirts of metropolitan areas without acceptable basic sanitation and where access to health services or medical care are often rare events.
