- HEALTH AND MIGRATION - 4-13 July 2016
‘Migration and health’ are two wide-ranging concepts that are intertwined in many ways. During the lectures we will focus on people, organisms and objects that can cross borders and thus affect health. Furthermore, structures of health care, influencing these movements will be elucidated.
This encompasses the migration of people, either forced or by choice, with topics as: health in refugee camps, legal status of displaced people, pathology, migration and mental health, the brain drain and brain gain, medical tourism and many more. Along with people, micro-organisms cross borders, giving rise to pandemics or being used in biological warfare. All these topics pose serious challenges to human health. Furthermore we will discuss the transport of organs, pharmaceuticals and other consumer goods on the global trading market that affect health. Through lectures and interactive workshops we will look at possible solutions on how to deal with the challenges posed by migration. In addition, we will address the underlying social, economic, cultural, structural and environmental determinants of migration and health. Specifically war and conflict will be discussed, as well as the challenges posed by climate change. In discussing the determinants of migration, special attention will be given to the health of vulnerable groups such as women and children. The different topics will be grouped in thematic days. We try our best to make every session as interactive as possible.
The course is open to a limited number of 28 health sciences students with a maximum of 4 students per country. Each candidate must be fluent in English. The deadline for applications is April 30th. To apply, read the instructions below.
