Migrant Care SIG
Welcome to the meeting point of enthusiastic Young and Future Family Doctors who share a special interest on Migrant Care, International Health and Travel Medicine. This is the right SIG to share the challenges you face and the solutions you found when working in an increasingly multicultural and interconnected world. Be part of the positive change.
The SIG held its debut workshop "Improving Migrant Care in Europe - learning from each other now and in the future" at Wonca Europe Preconference 2018.
Do you have any idea on the theme of migrant care, international health and travel medicine? Contact the SIG and the group will try to guide you and support you in organizing the activity (workshop, oral presentation, poster, research, etc). The SIG can always help you to find work partners among its members.

Migrant Workforce SIG
Did you migrate to work in a country different to where you originally trained? Maybe, you didn't but you are interested in the topic. This SIG is for you all!

  • This SIG's mission is to analyze and define the needs of migrant family doctors in Europe/World, and share these with colleagues from national and international organizations to develop successful strategies for universal solutions.
  • This SIG's vision is to bring migrant family doctors in Europe/World together, reflect on barriers, stressors and their root causes. The group wants to create resources that characterise these issues and offer solutions. The group wants to defend migrant family doctors nationally and internationally, and train all family doctors to support and advocate for them.
  • This SIG was created for family doctors by family doctors who have experienced emigrating from one country and immigrated to another.
  • It was created in January 2019 and in six months the group had grown to 120 members suggesting that there is a need for support amongst this demographic. The group hopes to do this through research (publications and conference workshops), through providing informative materials and through creating a community to share challenges and joys.
  • The SIG believes that those who will migrate will migrate anyway. The SIG is not promoting active recruitment from overseas but, for those who have made the decision already, the group is there to understand the motivations of migration and support each other to make this transition smooth.


  • Activities (examples): The SIG has successfully concluded a collaborative research group on barriers to reasearch in early career GPs and the development of a white paper on collaboration with EGPRN.
  • Plans: work on early career GP researcher enablers; tangible outcomes of doing research; creating research ecosystems; creating mentorship opportunities and research training; using new technology to approach and network with early career GP researchers.
  • The research SIG lead may be by extension and after confirmation by the EYFDM board, the liaison officer between EYFDM and the EGPRN network.

Equally Different
How do inequality and health relate? Increasing evidence indicates that many health outcomes can be linked to different levels and patterns of inequality within a given population. Despite remarkable progress in health status and life expectancy in OECD countries over the past decades, inequalities persist not only between countries, but also among specific groups population within each country. Such health inequalities are linked to many factors, including differences in exposure to risk factors and access to health care.
The "Equally Different" SIG aims to research and discuss health inequalities and their impacts on patients as well as the role of health professionals on changing such disparities. At the moment the SIG is studying and analyzing structural violence in Primary Care, in particular refugees’ health and the impact of gender on everyday practice.
