Presenters: Joep Avezaat & Marijke Luitjenhuis (Netherlands) and Cheryl Chin Yi-Fen (Malaysia)

Refugees around the world have been especially affected by COVID 19. Although the rights of refugees are written into the UN Declaration of Human Rights (1948) and Convention of Refugees (1951), each country interprets refugee status differently. Many are restricted to overcrowded environments with poor sanitation and limited access to health care, making this population especially vulnerable to contracting and dying of COVID-19. This webinar will address aspects of refugee issues in Europe and South East Asia from the perspective of mental health workers.
