“Migration is a fact of life and governments face the challenge of integrating the health needs of migrants into national plans, policies and strategies” – as reported by the World Health Organization (March 2010).
Along the same line of thought, ASEF Public Health Network will organise a Public Talk “Health and Migration: perspectives from Asia and Europe” on 7 March 2012 in Barcelona, Spain. It will be co-organised with Casa Asia.
This event will be an interactive forum to discuss different socio-economic and cultural determinants that affect migrants’ health across Asia and Europe. Eminent speakers from the two regions will share their insights on topics including – various social determinants of migrants’ health, multi-sectoral efforts to address migrants’ health and recommendations for Asia–Europe collaboration on health and migration.
Representatives from ASEM embassies, academia, corporations, UN agencies and other international non-profit organisations and the media are invited to participate.
Interested individuals, organisations and media representatives who wish to attend the event can register by sending an email to email@example.com
