HeaVen - Venezuelan migration, human rights and intersectoral strategies: Towards a new right to primary health care for irregular migrants in Colombia

Project description

Investigating how irregular migrants gain access to primary health care

The EU-funded HEAVEN project will use the example of Venezuelan migration to Colombia to examine how irregular and regularised migrants can enjoy their right to primary health care (PHC). Interdisciplinary research and empirical data collection will be used to mobilise synergies between human rights law and public health standards and understand how state and non-state actors implement legal obligations concerning migrants' right to health that comply with a PHC approach. Involving a collaboration between Queen's University Belfast in the United Kingdom and the Universidad del Rosario in Colombia, HEAVEN's findings will contribute to new knowledge and intersectoral dialogue on PHC as a human rights issue in the context of challenging migration phenomena.
