Summer School on Migration and Health for the EECA countries

The Regional Expert Group on Migrant Health is organizing a Summer School for experts in migration and public health. The school will take place in Yerevan, Armenia, on August 21-22, 2023.

In order to develop a coordinated response to provide healthcare services to people in migration due to emerging flows of people on the move across the EECA region, the expert community needs to identify reliable data that would allow assessing the current needs of migrants and refugees in relation to HIV, tuberculosis, and other social diseases.

The aim of the upcoming meeting is to discuss the relevant demographic and sociological methods of research in the EECA region that are important for understanding the population size of key affected groups among migrants and refugees in the EECA countries, as well as their needs in healthcare services, as well as legal support, and social care. A particular focus will be made on migrant and refugee populations in Central Asia and the Caucasus.

We also plan to discuss and update the essential package of HIV services for migrants in the EECA region.
