PGHES02 Migration and Health 5 op
Master's Degree Programme in Public and Global Health


Forced and voluntary forms of migration are current and challenging issues in an increasingly globalized world. Various crises force people to leave their homelands as refugees. Polarizing social conditions in Central Africa and the Middle East feed into the migration crises we are seeing in the Mediterranean region. Migration has its own demographics which may affect the health of the migrant in many ways, both short and long term. Also multicultural encounters within health care are explored in this course.
The migration of health workers redistributes skilled health professionals and contributes to health-related disparities. The course analyses the dynamics of the global health work crisis and investigates mitigation strategies, such as skills transfer and local capacity building.
