EuroHealthNet opening plenary session: Social inequalities and migrant inclusion in urban settings: a call for changing public health practice

EuroHelathNet will host the opening plenary session on 'Social inequalities and migrant inclusion in urban settings: a call for changing public health practice'

More than half of the world’s population now lives in urban areas, and urbanisation has significant impacts on the whole of society. Cities are major destinations for internal and external migration alike. Access to services, affordable housing, and quality employment in urban areas are challenges common to all vulnerable populations, including migrants. These difficult circumstances – and rising inequalities – have strained social inclusion efforts across Europe. In this environment, policymakers, civil society actors, and community advocates must work collaboratively and creatively across sectors to improve health and social outcomes not only for migrants, but for all vulnerable populations in urban environments. How can public health practitioners adapt their services to this context and to address the needs of migrants? Can public health improve its integration with other social services to fight inequalities?

This session will attempt to address these and related critical questions, discussing major issues in the field of health equity, migrant health and urban planning while highlighting inspiring case studies.
