The Migrant Health (MIG-H) Training project is a comprehensive training package on communicable diseases and mental health issues for frontline health, police and related professionals. The project is coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit – GIZ, with technical lead by the Migration Health Division (MHD) of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Regional Office in Brussels, and in collaboration with ASPHER, and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). The MIG-H Training developed and piloted training modules for health professionals and law enforcement officers working with migrants and refugees in ten countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Norway, Serbia, Slovenia and Spain.
A dissemination workshop is planned during EPH pre-conference activities, Wednesday 28 November from 09:00 – 17:00. The workshop will feature presentations of the training modules and evaluations and panel discussions bringing together interdisciplinary government experts from selected MIG-H pilot countries.
ASPHER has a few places remaining and support for our members to join the MIG-H workshop in Ljubljana. This session will link to a larger follow up action on training coordination on migrant health across 30+ countries scheduled for 2018/2019, and we very much hope that ASPHER members take advantage of our involvement in this project.
Interested individuals should send email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 17:00 CET Tuesday, 13 November confirming their interest and availability along with a bio and a few words on why they would like to join the MIG-H workshop.
