Language Barriers in a Clinical Context

How does a lack of interpretation services during medical appointments affect the health of Afghan refugee communities in the state of California?

Include information on more specific Afghan refugee communities in California or the US. For example, the Prevalence and incidence of afghan refugees in California. What percent of these afghan refugees have language barriers or limited income? From a public health standpoint, why is it significant to intervene among the Afghan population? What are the consequences of not providing adequate or proper health care in refugee populations from previous research? Look into the social determinants and covariates that literature discusses regarding Afghan refugees within the specific region. If there are papers on Afghan refugees in CA, but there are not, then you can expand your search to studies among Afghan refugees in the US too. How is the overall health of the Afghan refugees in the US being measured?
