The WHO Department of Health and Migration aims to promote knowledge sharing, build on existing capacities and stimulate a research agenda on health and migration. The Department of Health and Migration organizes the yearly Global School on Refugee and Migrant Health with the aim of supporting countries and territories to build competency on the public health aspects of migration and to promote the development and dissemination of knowledge, attitude and practices based on the exchange of experiences and evidence.
This course consists of video recordings from the 2022 School, which focuses on promoting capacity-building for improving refugee and migrant health.
The primary aim of the yearly Global School on Refugee and Migrant Health is to contribute to promoting health among migrants, refugees, and their host populations. Each year, the Global School programme is developed around an overarching thematic area, built by merging and exchanging country knowledge and experiences in close collaboration with WHO regional offices, WHO country offices and governments.
This course was developed from previous recording sessions held during 2022. Technical content is delivered innovatively through video reportages, presentations and panel discussions with engagement of international experts, representatives from WHO and other United Nations agencies, and field actors from different regions and disciplines relevant to the area of health and migration.
