6th Swiss Symposium on Refugee and Migrant Health

The 6th Swiss Symposium on Refugee and Migrant Health will take place on September 19th 2024. This year’s symposium is dedicated to the topic of equitable healthcare for vulnerable and socially disadvantaged population groups. The global increase in refugee flows and the Covid-19 pandemic have made it clear that health and illness are unequally distributed among the Swiss population and that access to the healthcare system is limited for some people. Experts will highlight care difficulties for various marginalized groups, discuss models of good practice and recommendations for action.

In addition, workshops will be offered in the morning to address the needs of migrants “sans papier” and transgender patients with regard to legal, political and health aspects as well as identification, treatment, management.  The workshops will be offered in English with exchange in German, wherever wanted (marked as de & en), or solely in English (en) or German (de).

Thus, this year’s symposium will again provide an opportunity to expand one’s knowledge and clinical skills and gain new insights in the field of migration and health. Besides the exchange with experts and peers there will be again the possibility to get in direct contact with different organizations in our foyer.

Don`t miss this great opportunity to increase your knowledge, gain skills, exchange and to extend your network.

Join us for the 6th Swiss Symposium on Refugee Health on September 19th in Bern, Switzerland.
