CORE COURSE 

Public Health and Migration: Access, Politics, and Human Rights

Migrants, including refugees, asylum seekers, and economic migrants, are voluntarily or involuntarily moving to new locations, such as Sweden. Upon arrival, some may be suffering from tuberculosis, HIV, or other diseases rarely occurring in the host country. This course addresses the health status and care needs as well as the legal, financial, and cultural barriers to accessing treatment faced by the migrant population. Through contemporary case studies, you analyze the relationship between migrant health needs and the existing healthcare structure.
