ASEF’s Latest Publication on Health and Migration

Project Updates


1 Nov 2013

ASEF’s newest publication, ‘The Health Dimension of Asian Migration to Europe’ is now online. This report features the outcomes of ASEF’s Joint Research on Health and Migration, undertaken by Fondazione ISMU (Italy) and the Yuchengco Center (Philippines).

One of the major findings of the study indicated that in Spain and Italy, Chinese and Filipino migrants rarely make full use of available healthcare services, eventhough both of these countries have health services that are relatively widely available to migrants compared to other EU member states. Some of the major barriers migrants face in making use of healthcare services in the receiving countries are: 1) health service providers’ lack of understanding of migrants’ health-seeking behaviour, 2) low cross-cultural competencies among healthcare providers and migrants, and 3) limited opportunities for migrants to engagein health policy development.
