Electronic Personal Health Record (e-PHR)
سجل الصحة الشخصية الإلكترونية
English, Arabic
Online resources (website, e-learning platform)
electronic platform:The aim of the electronic Personal Health Record (e-PHR) and its platform is to enhance knowledge amongst stakeholders about refugees’ and migrants’ health needs; to ensure that migrant health assessment records are available at transit and destination countries; and to strengthen national and cross-border disease surveillance and response capacities. To respond to the need to foster appropriate health care provision to migrants and to harmonize health assessment practices within the EU, a Handbook for Health Professionals was developed by the Migration Health Division of the International Organization for Migration. Based on this, the Personal Health Record (PHR) was produced with the support from the European Commission and contribution from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). The PHR helps to construct/reconstruct the medical history of arriving migrants, thereby establishing their health status and medical needs. It provides an opportunity to record subsequent provision of treatment, including vaccinations, and to offer counselling and health education services. Therefore, the PHR is a personal document that migrants and refugees should keep with them and that contains the individual’s health data and information. The tool will also help Health Professionals get a comprehensive view of the person’s health status and needs during clinical encounters and/or treatment. The PHR is accompanied by a Handbook to be used by Health Professionals. It provides guidance to on the use of the PHR and, in more general terms, the health assessment process for migrants and refugees. The PHR is based on IOM’s extensive experience in pre-departure health assessments (HAs), inter alia, within the long-standing context of resettlement of refugees and, since 2016, of relocation within the EU.

Language issues in migration and integration: perspectives from teachers and learners
English
Online resources (website, e-learning platform)
Online resources: This online book is about the role of language in the integration of migrants. It brings together the perspectives of both learners and teachers/policy makers and researchers who have worked in education of migrants. It offers direct statements from learners, migrants who arrived in a new country and face language difficulties. Several of the chapters are based on research projects funded between 2011 and 2014 under the auspices of the ESOL Nexus project: http://esol.britishcouncil.org. In many of the chapters the approach is practical; highlighting ways that teachers can engage more successfully with their learners, fostering a sense of integration within the classroom itself. Other chapters provide a perspective on approaches to language and integration in countries where the national language is not English or where English is only one of the main languages spoken.
