Ph.D in Migrant Health: Transforming data collection and surveillance around vaccination (including COVID-19) and key diseases in migrants in the MENA Region
Description: What We Are Looking for:
The Consortium — the Migrant Health MENA Working Group — is seeking a student pre-doctoral fellow who is interested on working in the research project of the team focused on data collection and surveillance around vaccination (including COVID-19) and key diseases in migrants in the MENA Region. This is a unique opportunity for a motivated research to contribute to the transformation of data collection around migrant health and working in Low-middle income countries and carrying out research that has social impact and responds to unmet medical needs. The student will work in collaboration with other PhD students from an International Consortium (United Kingdom, Spain, Morocco, Tunisia and Sudan) and he/she will have the opportunity to obtain an International PhD in partnership with the University of Barcelona.
About the project:
The objective of this project is to develop, evaluate, and implement the Migrant Health Country Profile tool (MHCP-t) in specific sites in the MENA region (Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan and Yemen), an innovative digital tool that will facilitate the monitoring of key migrant health indicators to assess health needs and gaps in provision, improve health outcomes, and ensure they are included, particularly in the immediate COVID-19 vaccine response. MHCP-t will enable countries to drive data collection strengthening, facilitate cross-country comparisons, and ultimately to transform service delivery and policy making around migration and health.
This highly novel approach facilitates data collection around three health domains of relevance to migrant health: disease-specific data, policies and legal frameworks, and service provision, in areas of critical importance in migrant health: tuberculosis, HIV,
viral hepatitis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases, vaccine-preventable diseases (including COVID-19) and non-communicable diseases.
We will develop MHCP-t, deliver a process evaluation to test and evaluate it, and validate its real-time use in MENA countries with the aim of embedding the tool into routine practice in health and data systems, aligning with major global initiatives to strengthen data collection in migrant populations. A core focus of our research Consortium –The Migrant Health MENA Working Group– is to develop research capacity in the MENA Region via training and mentoring early and mid-career researchers to deliver the proposed research, and to establish a research network with strong links to leading MENA Region and European academic institutions.
