Refugees arrive in Denmark by different paths and canals. In some municipalities all refugees are offered a systematic health assessment when they receive a residence permit. The conducted assessments in Copenhagen and Aarhus have resulted in five studies and this review sums up some of the important results. Vitamin-D deficiencies, anaemia, latent tuberculosis, and symptoms of PTSD are just some of the most frequent conditions seen in newly arrived refugees. A health assessment upon resettlement has several important purposes and should be offered to all newly arrived refugees in Denmark.
