3rd Annual 2018 Health & Human Rights Conference sponsored by NYU College of Global Public Health, NYU Florence and HealthRight

When:3/26/18, 8:00am - 3/27/18, 5:00pm
Where:Florence, Italy

As you know, Europe is experiencing a migration and refugee crisis unlike anything it has seen since World War II. Unlike most humanitarian crises, this is happening in a setting with universal access to health care, yet public health systems are nevertheless struggling to meet demands. NYU is bringing together academic, political, and operational humanitarian actors to review the current situation and evidence-­base to set policy guidelines about protecting and ensuring the well being of refugee and migrant populations entering Europe. This conference would build on current academic and policy work to contribute to the response of the academic community to this crisis, and each panel will work together to publish a white paper on the topic.
