Migrant Health in Big Cities: Can Past Health Crises Inform the Future?

November 29, 2022 @ 9:00 am 10:30 am

Recent studies, including a systematic review done by the Center for Immigrant, Refugee, and Global Health (CIRGH) in 2022, highlight the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 –and other public health crises– on migrant populations, particularly in large urban settings. This webinar brings together researchers from a variety of institutions to discuss what has been learned about migrant health policy in urban areas facing public health crises and how these lessons can inform future policy and action. Speakers will highlight the impact of exclusion, promising strategies for integration and social connection, and the role of civil society in serving vulnerable migrant groups, among other themes.
