Episode 5: Health
Health during and after the pandemic
The Covid 19 pandemic has left a mark - it made it harder to get medical support during the lockdowns and it also left many people with mental health problems.
Mental Health is important
Mental Health has always been a struggle for many many refugees. Many of them have had traumatizing experiences - either in their home countries, or on their journey.
Vulnerabilities are interconnected. Many of the topics we focus on in this podcast, such as a home, food supply or support for women and girls can intersect with each other and many of them lead to a vulnerability regarding their health.
We talked to Gabriel, Fatima and Jameela about health and we had a look into the VULNER reports on Uganda, Lebanon and Belgium that show the research done by scientists regarding health issues in refugee settlements and camps.
