Purpose
  • Social inclusion
The project MEET aims to strengthen the recognition of diversity and multiculturalism and include migration-related competences in the health care services by adapting and developing an innovative community health education model and a professional development programme for social and health service providers. It is addresses to migrant associations, community leaders, and cultural and linguistic mediators in the host country. In this context it aims to build the capacity of people with a migrant background as Community Health Educators, who can then support other community members in developing their own capacities, for tackling health issues. The CHE model aims to raise awareness of particular health issues and to bring about behavioural changes among members of their communities.
