Fall 2019 Quarterly Conversations in Global Health –
Migrant Caravan & Health
Wednesday, November 6th, 2019
Great Hall, International House
More people are on the move now than ever before as thousands of Central American migrants have made their way to the U.S. border to flee violence at home. This rapid increase of population movement has important public health implications, and therefore requires an adequate response from the health sector. Ratified international human rights standards and conventions exist to protect the rights of migrants and refugees, including their right to health. Nevertheless, many refugees and migrants often lack access to health services and financial protection for health. Join us for a discussion on the region’s largest so-called caravan on record and its impact on global health.
