Curtin University Australia 2022 International RTP Scholarship in Furthering the Public Health Response to Population Mobility: (Deadline 18 July 2022)
Migrants from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds are vulnerable for health disparities relating to insecure housing and homelessness. Understanding the intersections between health, housing and migration is critical to reducing these health inequities. This research project will examine public health strategies to address housing insecurity and health outcomes for migrants from CaLD backgrounds in Western Australia (WA).
Population mobility and migration increase vulnerability for housing insecurity and a range of communicable and non-communicable health issues. Influencing factors include level of control over travel, transnational health practices, individual and organisational health literacy, cultural and linguistic diversity, migration and health policy, social networks, and support in country of origin and destination. For example, asylum seekers and refugees are more likely to experience post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and other mental health issues increasing the risk of homelessness. This may be due to settlement processes, loss of connection with country of origin and stress associated with seeking asylum. In turn, people who experience homelessness or housing stress are often at risk of a range of mental and physical health issues, social exclusion, and discrimination.
