IKD seminar series 2023: How did migrant health care workers fare during COVID-19? Risks, impacts and responses
- 27 Apr - 13 Jan
- United Kingdom
11:30 - 14:00 GMT
This session presents findings from a UKRI-funded research project into the experiences of migrant health care workers during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. We chart the pressures on this workforce, including their higher risks of death and whether collective responses to COVID-19 addressed the specific risks they face. We draw out the policy issues and lessons from our research. The session is held jointly with our project partner, Public Services International.
