Join us for an enlightening discussion on the topic of access to healthcare in England for migrants.

Join us for an enlightening discussion on the topic of access to healthcare in England for migrants and the notable differences they experience compared to the general population. This engaging event, featuring our respected speaker José Carlos Mejía Asserias, a researcher, facilitator, and project manager specializing in HIV and mental health in London, will delve into the challenges migrants face when seeking medical assistance, including issues related to immigration status, language barriers, cultural differences, and systemic limitations. Through informative presentations and thought-provoking discussions, we aim to foster a deeper understanding of the unique barriers that migrants encounter within the healthcare system. José’s extensive experience collaborating with public bodies and community organizations, and his dedication to projects focusing on migrants, LGBT communities, and indigenous groups in the UK, Brazil, and Colombia, brings a unique perspective to the discussion. Whether you are an academic researcher, healthcare professional, policymaker, or an individual passionate about social equality, this event will provide valuable insights and inspire collective action towards creating an inclusive and accessible healthcare system for all. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a meaningful conversation that aims to promote compassion, equality, and better health outcomes for migrants in England. Reserve your spot today to gain valuable insights from our guest speaker and contribute to this important event.
