Public Health Events


Project Period:
7 November 2014
Manila, the Philippines

Since 2011, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) Public Health Network has promoted collaboration between Asia and Europe on migration health. In this endeavour, ASEF facilitated exchange of information and sharing of knowledge among representatives from international organisations, governments, academia and non-governmental organisations through joint research as well as a series of workshops.

The ASEF Public Health Network launched below three publications at the Seminar:

1) Staying Healthy in Italy: How to better Use the Italian Healthcare System, published both in English and Tagalog, is a health booklet designed for Filipino migrants departing for Italy. It aims to raise awareness among Filipino migrants on the Italian health system and encourage its utilisation.

2) Policy Brief: Ways to Improve the Utilisation of Health Services and Intake of Prescribed Medicines aims to provide government officials and policy makers in the Philippines and Italy with recommendations based on the ASEF Public Health Network’s research Health Dimension of Asian Migration to Europe, published in 2013.

3) Migrants and Healthcare: Social and Economic Approaches presents migration policy analysis with a focus on migrants’ access to healthcare, stakeholder analysis and case studies of Austria, Italy, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The ASEF Public Health Network Seminar presented the highlights of these research projects and discuss how collaboration between Asia and Europe can contribute to improving health of migrants.

The programme can be found in the ‘Documents’ section on the right sidebar.
