Knowledge Center on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Migration
The Knowledge Center on Sexual and Reproductive health and Migration aims to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice, by 1) collecting and disseminating evidence based knowledge about sexual reproductive health and migration, and 2) educating, raising awareness, and informing healthcare providers in their practice.
Across Europe, about 10% of all births are among migrant women, and some migrant women have a higher incidence of adverse birth outcomes (such as maternal mortality or near miss, neonatal mortality, congenital anomalies and instrumental births). It is crucial for health care providers to be able to assess their patients’ risks, based on their migration profile and medical as well as sociocultural background. The knowledge center uses Rosling’s principles of Factfulness to dissiminate a fact-based understanding of SRH, and how to best provides healthcare improving the health of migrant patients. The project is developed in collaboration with health care providers from the Women’s clinic at Uppsala University Hospital (Akademiska sjukhuset) and Swedish Society of Obstetrics and Gyneacologists (SFOG) working group for global reproductive health (Global-ARG).
