Journal of Ambulatory Care Management ():10.1097/JAC.0000000000000452, January 24, 2023. | DOI: 10.1097/JAC.0000000000000452 Buy PAP Metrics Abstract Data about US asylum seekers' health are lacking. We assessed the medical literature by performing a bibliometric scoping review of the literature from 1946 to 2020. Of 114 articles identified, 48 (42.1%) were empirical studies and 66 (57.9%) were editorials or commentaries. Empirical studies focused on mental health (60.42%), African asylees (45.83%). Editorials and commentaries focused on detention and medicolegal processes (31.82% and 30.3%). Empirical data on the health of US asylum seekers are limited. Research expansion requires increased commitment, funding, and participatory engagement of asylees. This limited representation in the scientific literature can impact their care and health system preparedness. © 2023 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
