[Correspondence] Memory recall of traumatic events in refugees

The migratory movement from sub-Saharan Africa, east Africa, and the Middle East towards North America and western Europe is ongoing, implicating more and more health-care professionals.1 People who are migrating are more susceptible to physical or psychological disabilities, therefore seek increased assistance from health-care professionals, especially because of physical or psychological disabilities, or both.2–4 These traumas and much of the susceptibility to their development might be sustained by the administrative and political process of obtaining asylum in itself.
