Migration and the right to health conference
26 May 2010
14:00 to 16:00 , Chancellor's Hall, Senate House, University of London, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU
Migrants face many difficulties when trying to access health care, especially if they are unable to work, or work in the informal economy where such rights do not apply. Migration experts will discuss the implications of these challenges during a wide-ranging two-day conference. Events runs over 2 days, 26 to 27 May 2010.
Speakers, including Jasmine Gideon (Birkbeck), Felicity Thomas (Institute of Education), Mary Haour-Knipe (formerly of the International Organisation for Migration), and Sally Hargreaves (Imperial College, London),will address questions, including:
- To what extent are migrants in different contexts able to access their rights and entitlements in relation to health and health care services?
- What health seeking strategies do they employ?
- What voice do migrants have in debates around health care?
- How are these processes gendered?
