The M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centers, Universities and National Academies is an unique international network of 30 leading international academic health centers, universities and research institutions, all of which are committed to improving global health and working with political and economic decision-makers to develop science-based solutions to health challenges worldwide.
This webinar is part of the M8 Alliance Webinar Series on Migrant and Refugee Health, which has been a focus topic of the M8 Alliance since 2016. Regular sessions at the World Health Summit and dedicated expert meetings have laid the basis for effective international research networks. The webinar series builds on this tradition and uses the opportunities of digital technologies to bring together even more experts from around the world to discuss global, develop innovative and collaborative answers and promote science-based policy advice.
The aim of this webinar is to cover wide-ranging aspects of the topic “The need for integration of migration health aspects in the education of health professionals” including, but not limited to, the health issues affecting migrants and refugees for which focused education of health professionals is needed; additional skills and competencies (including communication and cultural competences) that need to be developed; overcoming academic/institutional resistance to such modifications in the education of health professionals; synergies of such education with broader health goals such as the SDGs/Universal Health Coverage (health equity/leaving no-one behind) and public health/health security (e.g., in the time of COVID-19, “no-one is safe until everyone is safe”).
