This workshop aims to bring together a group of early to mid career and established researchers from the UK and Southern Africa to explore cutting- edge research on patient mobility, migration and health. An explicit focus of the event will be on methods for analysis of the connection between mobility and health and on Southern Africa as an exemplar region. It seeks to:
– Analyse available evidence and methods on patient mobility, migration and health systems (with a specific but not exclusive focus on Southern Africa
– Produce a series of papers covering the issue of patient mobility, migration and health systems, to be offered to a journal as a special collection.
– Develop collaboration and capacity for such collaboration between partners.
In addition, the workshop will be attended by policymakers including from the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to ensure research is policy relevant.
Papers presented at the workshop will also form a special edition of a Journal.
