Webinar March 14th: Migrant healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic: why we should worry about health systems and governance

March 14 - 14:00 - 15:00 CET

Organised by: GLOHRA Project PROTECT, in collaboration with EUPHA Health Workforce Research (EUPHA-HWR) and Public Health, BabeČ™-Bolyai University, Romania
Chairs: Ellen Kuhlmann and Marius Ungureanu

Hosts: Marius Ungureanu and Monica Brînzac, BabeČ™-Bolyai University, Romania
Webinar powered by: EUPHA 
Migrant healthcare workers played a crucial role in maintaining healthcare delivery and resilience of the health system during the COVID-19, but were largely absent from pandemic policy, and the literature highlights inequalities and structural racism. This webinar calls for greater attention to migrant HCWs. However, simply adding the migration status is not enough.
We introduce an intersectional health system-based approach. Results from the German PROTECT project will be contrasted with the situation in the United Kingdom and Brazil, where evidence of disadvantages of migrant healthcare workers seem to be strongest. Key stakeholders in the field will comment and add evidence from a health system, management, profession and policy perspective, thus  stimulating critical debate and policy solutions.
