Issue 6 - Migration and Asia



Welcome back to the Race & Health Quarterly. This issue explores migration, health, and discrimination around Asia. While migration is a positive experience for many, migrants' access to healthcare, safe working environments, and exposure to violence by stigma and sociopolitical exclusion can threaten their health and wellbeing. In cases of trafficking, these conditions are forced upon survivors. Engage these issues with us in Issue 2, where we highlight work around conflict, trafficking, labour, and how these relationships shape health.


If you believe in our work, we ask that you join us, support us and importantly, if you can, fund us.

Looking Back


Introducing the Envisioning Environmental Equity Project (EEE)

This year, Race & Health started work on a new project known as Envisioning Environmental Equity, or, EEE. EEE explores how climate change impacts the health and wellbeing of communities from most affected peoples and areas (MAPA) through community workshops with young activists, the development of a climate justice education module, and an academic paper. MAPA remain excluded from climate mitigation agendas and leadership, resulting in further inequity. With the help of our organisational partners: The University of São Paulo (USP), YACAP, and Climate Operation, we aim to create climate and health work that centres racial justice, which means our efforts to reduce the negative impacts of climate change must be free from discrimination and anti-oppresive. Learn more about the EEE project here, and follow us on social media for updates on our deliverables. @RaceAndHealth @ClimateOperation @yacaphilippines Silence Heard Out Loud by Rita and Delan Check out Rita and Delan's review of Silence Heard Loud, by Anna Konik. This film offers snapshots of traumatised lives through the stories of migrants who have fled persecution and settled in the UK. The film gives the viewer a chance to hear people whose stories remain trapped within them.
