The aims of this needs assessment is to gain an understanding of the sexual health needs of asylum and refugees living in Bolton in order to establish if the current provision of sexual health services meet the needs of this vulnerable population and identify gaps in services. The findings may be used for monitoring, planning, interventions and can also inform commissioning and service design that will enable asylum seekers and refugees to access services to achieve positive sexual health and wellbeing.

This piece of research is essential to commissioners and providers involved in sexual health services for aslyum seekers/refugees.
