Pregnant on the Run: Caring for Vulnerable Populations during the 2015-2018 Refugee Influx in Germany

This is a past event.

Between 2015 and 2016, Germany registered 1,200,000 refugees crossing its borders, more than ever before in the history of the nation. After the first wave of mostly young, male, Syrian asylum-seekers, the demographics of fleeing people diversified rapidly.  Among them were an increasing number of pregnant refugees with a specific set of vulnerabilities and needs that were often incompatible with the harsh conditions of refugee camps and bureaucracy.  As a part of this Maternal & Child Health Student Association (MCHSA) seminar, guest presenter Jana Pickette will speak on her personal experience caring for those refugees and share best practices on making refugee camps safer spaces for all.
