WHO/Europe Migration and Health Programme: Refugee and Migrant Maternal and New Born Health

On 10 April 2018 (12:30 – 14:00 CEST), WHO/Europe Migration and Health Programme will host the fifth in a series of webinars dedicated to addressing the timely and relevant topic of refugee and migrant health and well-being. The upcoming webinar will discuss maternal and new born health of refugees and migrants.


This webinar will focus on the promotion of maternal and newborn health in the context of growing migration flows and increasing proportion of female refugees and migrants, not only important to ensuring the rights and well-being of women and children, but also integral for longer-term sustainable development.  The webinar will discuss the current epidemiological picture on maternal and newborn health, the specific health challenges and barriers faced by pregnant migrant and refugee women, how wider social determinants impact entitlement to and utilization of care, as well as the tools and policies currently in place in the region to address this.
