Venue: John Snow Lecture Theatre B, Keppel St, LSHTM
The Health in Humanitarian Crises Centre and Centre for Global Chronic Conditions are co-hosting a joint seminar on access to healthcare for undocumented migrants and asylum seekers in the UK. The topic of access to healthcare in the UK for overseas visitors is frequently in the news with recent reports from the Equality and Human Rights Commission and the British Medical Association on this challenging topic. In this discussion, we will focus specifically on asylum seekers, failed asylum seekers, and undocumented migrants. The discussion will include short introductions from our guest speakers and then a panel discussion and questions from the audience.
