Migration and Health: Enhancing Intercultural Competence and Diversity Sensitivity

anytime, online course.

Access to responsive, people-centred health systems is essential to ensure appropriate health care for refugees and migrants throughout the process of migration and settlement. Focusing on intercultural competence and diversity sensitivity, this course contributes to a broader WHO strategy to develop an evidence-based response to the public health needs of refugees and migrants.

The course is aimed at health authorities at national, subnational and local levels, as well as health care practitioners, researchers, patients and caregivers. It provides:

  • an accessible introduction to the key concepts underpinning intercultural competence and diversity sensitivity;
  • an overview of the types of action that can be taken to improve health care at organizational, systemic, professional and individual health care provider levels;
  • several case studies to examine methods and techniques that can be used to promote migrant participation at different stages of policy and practice; and
  • an overview of factors to be considered in any initiative developed to promote intercultural competence and diversity sensitivity in health care.
