STREAM 2

PUBLIC HEALTH CHALLENGES IN MIGRATION

Migration and internal displacement involves significant numbers of persons moving from one location to one or more other locations, thus presenting themselves to at last two sets of public and private sector bodies dealing with public health.

In their point of origin, they were consumers of health services and, some may have been deliverers of such services. Prior to their departure, they may have been current with, or not have taken full advantage of such services and, therefore, were not in the best of health and became carriers of locally-sourced diseases and conditions or in need of deferred attention. Their departure may have impact on the allocation of public health funds to those staying in place.

At points of arrival, the migrants may introduce into the local population unfamiliar diseases and conditions  and the newcomers may not have been prepared to deal with what is endemic to that location and for which existing population has been prepared to deal with. 

Migrants can bring experience and skill sets not present before their arrival. Their interaction with new colleagues can generate novel research, innovation in product and therapy development. This synergy can also be of value to all migrants worldwide and should be encouraged throughout the public and private sectors.

Some select topics for panel discussion above to incorporate:

  1. Ethical Coverage Of Migration And Balanced Reporting
  2. Migration, Technology And Economic Inflow In Developing And Developed Nations
