INSIGHT: Millions of refugees are coming to new countries with either outdated, or no medical records at all. Possessing a medical record is not only a legal right, but also helps people live longer by providing healthcare providers with necessary genetic information.

IDEA: Canadians supply refugees with materials they need for a fresh start in life, and a medical record should be one of them. A partnership with UNHCR and 23andMe has the opportunity to provide a credible health record in the form of welcome packages during final health and security screenings.
