Katipunan Dialogue Episode 12: Health Migation for OFWs after COVID-19 - Podcast

Migration is an evolving global phenomenon and is increasingly considered as a social determinant of health. The COVID-19 virus is essentially unbiased; however, migrants’ exposure to infection and other health risks is greater due to existing disparities and inequities, which have been in place long before the pandemic. In this week’s podcast, we talk about the interconnected nature of international migration and health, with specific focus on the experiences of Overseas Filipino Workers. We ask in this episode, how did the pandemic impact migrant health, and what challenges and opportunities should we look into with respect to health migration of OFWs after COVID-19?
