Map and Directions



The Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health is an international event that offers researchers, faculty, graduate students and professionals working with migrant communities around the world, a unique opportunity to learn about different health issues that affect mobile populations. International experts  present on the relationship between migration and global health from public health, public policy, and social science perspectives. A special emphasis on the topic of Women and Migration will be given this year. Other topics such as Mental Health, Forced Migration, Research Methodologies for Migrant Populations, Best Practices to Address Migration and Health Issues, and Health Promotion,  will be covered throughout the Institute. The four-day course includes a combination of lectures, workshops, poster sessions, and field trips, to offer an exceptional opportunity not only to learn, but to create professional networks. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the event.

The organization of the 10th Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health is a joint effort of the Health Initiative of the Americas –a program of UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health-, the UC Global Health Institute through its Centers of Expertise on Migration and Health, and Women's Health and Empowerment, and the Migration and Health Research Center.
