How is it possible to promote and improve health among migrants?

What strategies can be implemented to inform migrants about the health system of the hosting country?

The first meeting of the project Vitality Intervention for Migrants – VIM took place in Göttingen (Germany) on 11th and 12th December 2017.

The project aims to promote information on a healthy lifestyle among migrants and to increase their confidence in using the existing health system in order to increase their skills in the health-related sectors.

Moreover, the acquisition of a healthy lifestyle is considered a prerequisite for a necessary integration into the learning systems of the host country.

 

In order to achieve this goal, VIM will be characterized by the following activities:

  • Development of a research report about health education of migrant.
  • Creation of small training units about health education.
  • Development of educational guidelines for educators working with migrants in diverse programmes.
  • Elaboration of VIM Online hub for migrant health education that provides an information and educational resource hub for adult educators and other professionals involved in health education of migrants.
  • Realisation of VIM in Practice and Experience report which documents and reflects the experiences gained in the piloting.
  • Creation of VIM Quality Badge to convey the idea of adult educators and training providers that have embedded health prevention and health educational elements for their learners in their training courses according to the VIM approach.
