About the Arizona Asylum Network:
The EAHR program is built upon the foundations of the "Arizona Asylum Network" (AAN) established in November 2018 by two residents at Banner University Hospital, Dr. Amy Rogers Guyton and Dr. Samantha Varner, as a response to the disproportionate nature of the need for these evaluations and the number of clinicians who were trained and available to provide them. In the first two years, 60 providers were trained and the network received evaluation requests for 76 asylum seekers.
In July 2020, the International Rescue Committee formally acquired the AAN to help build the network’s capacity and meet the growing need for evaluations in Arizona. In 2021, the AAN was integrated into the newly-established Evaluation Alliance for Human Rights.
