MIHKMA: Migration and Health Knowledge Management

The project focuses on expanding knowledge and understanding of migration and health, and supporting the development and uptake of evidence-informed guidance to ensure actions meet the health needs of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees. In doing so, the project seeks to ensure health professionals and health systems are adequately prepared to overcome the challenges associated with large arrivals of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.

MIHKMA will create a first-of-its-kind coordinated process to collect, analyse, summarize and widely disseminate best available knowledge, good practices and evidence-based approaches from the EC, WHO and other state-of-the-art migrant health initiatives and information sources. These activities will be undertaken within a broader initiative of the Regional Office, the Knowledge Hub on Health and Migration, a multi-stakeholder living platform aimed at bridging between science, policy and practice in this field. MIHKMA, is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) under the 3rd Health Programme, which is aimed at raising awareness, fostering and disseminating knowledge, and increasing adoption of migrant-health good practices and evidence-based approaches across European Union (EU) countries. The project will:

  • Develop and recommend technical guidance in priority issues of migrant health, which will include research, and development and dissemination of various tools and resources;
  • Develop at least four distance-learning webinars and associated training materials, videos, tools and resources;
  • Develop and implement coordinated communications on migrant health and promote access to the knowledge, good practice tools and resources researched and developed, and to the webinars.
