Abstract [en]

Assessments of the health needs of refugees and asylum seekers in Europe tend to focus on trauma suffered prior to exile and during the flight to the host country. Less attention has been paid to the ill effects of the process of applying for asylum in the host country. An exception to this generalisation is the documentation of the devastating effects of being denied asylum for young people in Sweden.

Some children whose asylum-applications are denied become withdrawn, and unable to eat, walk or communicate, are tube fed in bed, wearing nappies. The bed-bound young people have no obvious pathology causing their withdrawal from the world, except that their family’s application for asylum has been denied by the Swedish Migration Board.
