Brussels – ECRE/UNHCR Launch Event – Follow the Money Report II

Brussels – ECRE/UNHCR Launch Event – Follow the Money Report II

31/01/2019 - 31/01/2019

UNHCR and the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) invite interested parties to the launch of the Follow the Money II report, which looks at the use of money from the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) at the national level. This report analyses the use of AMIF funding during the 2014-17 period by examining the outcomes of national and European interim evaluations of the Fund, as well as the perspectives of civil society and other actors involved in national AMIF implementation. The report also contains a critical overview of the use of AMIF emergency assistance to implement actions in Member States during 2014-17.

The launch will include a presentation of the report’s findings and recommendations, followed by a panel discussion that will look both at the current AMIF and at financial instruments to be adopted in the coming months. The report was produced as part of a strategic partnership between ECRE and UNHCR that was established in 2016 to develop and promote discussions on the future of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).

The event will take place in Brussels on 31 January 2019, with registration at the event taking place at 09:30. Please confirm your presence by sending an email to Eilidh Turnbull at ECRE by 25 January 2019.

Brussels – ORAMMA Project Final Event

Brussels – ORAMMA Project Final Event

28/02/2019 - 28/02/2019

The ORAMMA Project has worked to develop an approach to healthcare for migrant and refugee women. On 28 February 2018, the project will host an event that allows attendees to hear about the work of the project, find out the results of the project’s feasibility study, and help the project think about its next steps.

ORAMMA, which stands for Operational Refugee and Migrant Maternal Approach, has been funded through the EU’s Health Programme to develop an operational and strategic approach for promoting safe motherhood, improving access and delivery of maternal healthcare for refugee and migrant women, and improving maternal health equality within the EU.

The project has developed and implemented training for health professionals on working with migrant women, including through e-learning. It also engaged in capacity building among migrant populations to increase their ability to access healthcare and advocate for themselves, as well as training migrant women to become maternity peer supporters. The overall approach was implemented as a pilot project in Greece, the Netherlands, and the UK.

The event is free to attend and open to all interested parties, but space is limited. Those interested in attending the event should register in advance.
