About the seminar

Health implications of forced displacement have become an essential part of the public health agenda for the 21st century. Yet, the health of displaced individuals in the transit and the early post-migration stage is poorly examined.

In this presentation, PhD candidate Elisabeth Strømme from UiB will discuss the temporal changes in somatic and mental health outcomes and their association with migration. Strømme will focus on Syrian refugees transferring from a conflict-near transit phase in the Middle East to an early resettlement phase in Northern Europe. She will present findings from her PhD project and implications for health policies.

Elisabeth Strømme is a PhD candidate at the department Global Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Bergen.
