LECTURE: Migration and health: exploring concepts and categories of displacement and mobility

With Courtland Robinson, Chair

Location: JHSPH Sheldon Hall W1214 | Watch via Webcast


In 2016, more than 250 million people were in migration around the world. This included not only refugees, asylum-seekers, and internally displaced persons (IDPs) but undocumented migrants, migrant workers, and survivors of human trafficking.  While the contexts differ, as do specific programmatic and policy remedies, what unites these populations are the health and protection risks they face in their migration in vulnerable circumstances. But reconciling these different concepts and classifications can pose challenges for humanitarian actors.
