The M8 Alliance, an international network of 30 academic health centres created under the World Health Summit, organises a series of webinars on migrant and refugee health. Earlier webinars this year focused on ensuring the COVID-19 vaccine reaches undocumented migrants, digital solutions for migrant and refugee health, and strengthening healthcare systems in Europe while improving migrant health.

The next webinar, to be held on 7 September 2021, will focus on the need for integration of migration health aspects in the education of health professionals.

Among others, the webinar will cover the following topics:

  • health issues affecting migrants and refugees for which focused education of health
    professionals is needed;
  • additional skills and competencies (including communication and cultural competence) that need to be developed;
  • overcoming academic/institutional resistance to such modifications in the education of health professionals;
  • synergies of such education with broader health goals such as the SDGs/Universal Health Coverage (health equity/leaving no-one behind) and public health/health security.
