This paper examines the policies of states and organizations to better understand the relationship between these policies and the health outcomes of urban refugees. Through this examination, it is argued that state policies allowing urban refugees to better economically and socially integrate into their host communities have positive effects upon the health outcomes of said urban refugees. Furthermore, international organizations can play an important part in information-sharing, advocacy and service provision but urban refugee populations require more context-specific programs that rely upon community involvement and organizational capacity.
