Description: 

Pushed by ongoing conflicts and pulled by the desire for a better life, over one million migrants/Refugees transited Balkan countries and arrived in Europe during 2015 and early 2016. To curb this influx, European countries instituted restrictive Migration policies often characterized by building of razor-wire border fences and border closures.
Among migrants/Refugees who received mental Health care in Serbia while travelling through Balkan countries to
Northern Europe, we assessed the prevalence and patterns of violent events experienced including physical trauma.
