This year’s Global Health Summer School focuses on common issues of globalisation, refugees and health, a very current but by no means a new topic. The major concern people have when migrating may not be access to a health system, but such access is essential for their health.
We will discuss the situation – dynamic and constantly evolving due to various factors. Refugees and migrants are a heterogenic group of people with different backgrounds, who are diversely affected by their flight and end up at various destinations - united by the hope for a better life.
How can we approach this discussion openly, analytically and inclusively, without stereotyping, stigmatising or generalising? While remaining aware of our own powerful and “privileged” Eurocentric viewpoint, we want to discover, together with academia and civil society organisations, what can be done practically and what should we demand politically in our democracies.
The Institute for Social Medicine, Epidemiology and Health Economics of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War Germany (IPPNW) host jointly the 4th Global Health Conference (September 12, 2015) and the 5th Global Health Summer School (September 13-19, 2015) in Berlin.
