BI FORUM 2014

Binational Policy Forum 2014 (Archive)

The 14th Annual Binational Health Week Inaugural Event and the Binational Policy Forum on Migration and Global Health took place in San Luis Potosí, Mexico on October 6th.  Approximately 200 participants came together to discuss the challenges facing migrant communities and to explore unique opportunities to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of this population.

The forum presentations were conducted by individuals from U.S. and Mexico – and discussions were based on five main topics that affect the health of the Latino migrants: Chronic Diseases, Infectious Diseases, Occupational Health and Access to Health Care Services.

This two-day event was organized and co-sponsored by the Ministry of Health of Mexico, the Institute for Mexicans Abroad, the Mexican Embassy in Washington, and the Health Initiative of the Americas at the University of California, Berkeley.
