Migrant Health in Crises
A One-Day Symposium on Health Challenges Facing Migrants and Refugees
While there is growing recognition of the scale of international migration and displacement, less attention has been paid to the particular health needs of migrants and displaced persons. This Symposium, jointly organized by the Center for Global Health Science and Security and the Department of Family Medicine at Georgetown University School of Medicine and the Institute for the Study of International Migration at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service, will bring together a range of academics and practitioners to consider the particular health challenges facing migrants and refugees.
This Symposium will convene subject matter experts from humanitarian organizations, governments, and academic partners from around the world to address some of the most pressing issues surrounding the health of displaced populations, both domestically and abroad. The discussion will be organized around three focus areas that impact migrant health in crises, each with a regional focus.
