  • Programme :10h30 : MUSAFIR : Migra­tion routes, mobi­li­ties, and infec­tious disease trans­mis­sion among Pakis­tani and Afghan migrants in France and Britain

    Abstract : This talk will expand on the theo­re­tical and ethno­gra­phic context of a recent ANRS-funded study, MUSAFIR, I conducted with Johann Cailhol in the North East Pari­sian suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis, onto mobi­li­ties and infec­tious disease trans­mis­sion among irre­gular Pakis­tani migrants. The study will examine how risk envi­ron­ments and infec­tious disease diag­noses related to inten­sive mobi­lity, chronic inse­cu­rity and psycho­so­cial stresses, shif­ting legal status and margi­na­li­za­tion assume different levels of inten­sity along migra­tion routes, and to which heal­th­care cove­rage differs accor­ding to the inter­sec­ting axes of loca­tion, legal status, and national poli­tics. This approach impli­cates a wider history of migrant border cros­sings and depor­ta­tions between Afgha­nistan, Britain and the EU. It also miti­gates the tendency of exis­ting studies to look at infec­tious disease in situ, rather than the context of ongoing or forced mobi­lity. Using parti­ci­pa­tory, clinical, and ethno­gra­phic (inclu­ding clinical ethno­gra­phic) methods, it will draw on the exper­tise of migrants, NGOs, and policy makers involved in the treat­ment of migrant health in order to advance health agendas adapted for clinical care and research.

    11h10 : Health recep­tion of asylum seekers in Denmark : mana­ging health in an unma­na­geable situation

    Marie Nore­damm, Professor, Danish Research Center for Migra­tion, Ethni­city and Health, Univer­sity of Copenhagen.

    Abstract : The talk will intro­duce the health recep­tion of asylum seekers in Denmark drawing on general Euro­pean pers­pec­tives on initial health exami­na­tions of asylum seekers related to visions and contents. Further, examples will be given regar­ding short and long-term health conse­quences related to being an asylum seeker. Examples focus on long-term mental health conse­quences related to waiting times and carrying out maternal and child health care in an unstable asylum context.

    11h40 : The needs in health educa­tion amongst recently arrived Pakis­tani migrants in France

    Johann Cailhol, MCU-PH dans le service de mala­dies infec­tieuses du CHU Avicenne, ratta­chée au LEPS UR 3412, Univer­sité Sorbonne Paris Nord. Direc­trice adjointe du LEPS UR 3412, fellow de l’ICM

    Abstract : Based on an ethno­gra­phic work, conducted by Nichola Khan and Johann Cailhol in 2018, we concep­tua­lized several public health inter­ven­tions for the commu­nity of recently arrived Pakis­tani migrants in Paris region. We will review the ratio­nale behind these inter­ven­tions. We will also present the imple­men­ta­tion process of one selected inter­ven­tion : a bilin­gual health educa­tion website, using a parti­ci­pa­tory approach.
