Somali children living in the United States are under-immunized and less likely to receive preventive health care. While barriers to health care have been described for Somali women receiving maternal health services, less is known about barriers to care for Somali children. To determine, through community assessment, barriers to heath care experienced by Denver-area Somali parents and to better understand Somali parents' expectations of preventive care for their children in order to design interventions and programs to improve their access to medical homes. We will recruit Somali parents and community leaders at Denver Health, other Denver-area clinics, and Somali community organizations for focus groups and key informant interviews. We will involve Somali community leaders in project design, implementation, and future planning. Using the results of the focus groups and key informant interviews, we will provide a report of interpreter services, parent perceptions, access, service provisions, and barriers experienced by Denver-area Somali families. We will also determine, using this information, future strategies and interventions to improve Somali families' participation in medical homes.
