Contemporary healthcare systems assume that the people for whom they provide care belong to populations that are largely settled. Yet, we know that people are moving, with migration and health a challenging issue in contemporary society. How do health systems deliver care to those who lack legal settled status or a permanent address?

This project establishes a research network, bringing together experts in health and migration, non-governmental organisations, the NHS and health professionals across Europe who deliver care to such groups. Members of the network explore the often dynamic and novel ways health professionals have engaged with the mobility of their patients, frequently working outside the regular health system.

We held our first workshop in January 2020. See the call for participants here, find more about the discussions here and check out the Working Paper collection that came out of it.

The second workshop followed in June 2021 (after an unanticipated break due to Covid-19). A video of the keynote lecture from Tullio Prestileo is available to watch.

Registration for the third workshop in September 2021 is now open! Please find out more about the event.
