There is a lack of evidence on the best way to identify and prevent negative reproductive health outcomes for refugee women seeking resettlement and that is associated with their migration experience compared to their non-refugee counterparts.

Refugee women experience various health challenges while in or in camps, different opinions on the impact of immigration on family planning, as well as fertility, are reported in the literature. The objective of this systematic analysis is to determine the differences in reproductive health status between women refugees in resettlement countries and their non-refugee counterparts. Since the evidence is largely derived from a primary population based on studies of different methodologies and quality, there remains a need for high-quality population studies of refugee women from different backgrounds comparing their health experiences with those non-refugee women, this in order to guide clinical and policy decision-making.
