About Us

Located in the heart of Harlem, the Center focuses on practical approaches to reduce health inequities in immigrant and refugee communities, both domestically and around the world. We aim to provide a scholarly basis for the development of healthy urban centers, equitable access to health services, and a deeper understanding of the linkages between migrant health and health disparities. 

The spread of monkeypox (orthopoxvirus), like the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and other infectious diseases, has been accompanied by the spread of much misinformation and unjustified stigmatization of people of particular demographics and backgrounds. This has in turn hindered proper responses to infectious diseases. 

The webinar on Tue, Aug 2, 2022 from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm ET includes an update from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene on the current monkeypox outbreak, a presentation on derailing stigma through proactive communications strategies with PRI experts, & a panel discussion on the challenges that misinformation and stigma have presented for managing outbreak communications.

The MS in Global and Migrant Health Policy is designed to provide working professionals with the content expertise and research methods required to formulate and evaluate global and migrant health policies and programs. The program’s core curriculum content is rooted in public health competencies while its context is framed within global and national health policy affecting migrant populations.

Join CUNY SPH on Wednesday, August 10 from 6:00-7:00 pm EST for an information session the the MS in Global & Migrant Health Policy.

The focus this year is on humanitarian aid in times of crisis. Specialists will provide insights into their work and the use of technology to strengthen the health and resilience of refugees and migrants. There will also be opportunities to learn how to start working or to become actively involved in  humanitarian aid. In addition, this year there will be workshops in the morning on alternative diagnostics and treatment options in rural settings or where resources are limited, such as language barriers. The workshops will be offered in English and German.
