The MERH 2018 Congress is hosted by an independent, non-profit making company working under the auspices of The University of Edinburgh, the European Public Health Association and NHS Health Scotland.  We intend to deliver to you a memorable, affordable, academic and social programme in one of the most spectacular cities in the world.

Congress aims :

  • To improve research, population health and health care for migrants and other discriminated-against populations
  • To bring together policy, social science, clinical, social service and public health perspectives and share and transfer learning within and across countries.
  • To examine contemporary problems across the globe and debate suggested solutions
  • To Consider health effects of social, environmental and demographic change associated with population migration, and the effects on diseases and their causes
  • To find ways to overcome differences in concepts and terminology so the field can be understood internationally in acceptable language.
  • To provide opportunities for people to showcase their work and to meet to share experience and motivations
  • To build networks that will last beyond the Congress itself
