Binational Policy Forum on Migration and Global Health
Inaugural Event for Binational Health Week
October 5, 2015
San Francisco Bay Area

The annual policy forum examines and promotes immigrant health issues as a policy priority in the United States, Mexico and Canada. Held every October during Binational Health Week, the forum presents the opportunity for policy-makers, researchers, students, and public health workers to share recent research, propose policy recommendations, and develop bilateral working strategies.

The policy forum is the launching event of Binational Health Week, an annual weeklong series of health promotion and health education activities that include workshops, insurance referrals, and medical screenings. This event has become one of the largest mobilization efforts of government agencies, community-based organizations and volunteers in North America to improve the health and wellbeing of underserved Latinos living in the United States. 

The goal of the forum is to convene key stakeholders from the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Latin-American countries to discuss migrant health challenges and to explore unique opportunities to work collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of this population. Topics that are addressed include HIV/AIDS, Diabetes, Occupational Health, Influenza, and Access to Health Insurance.
