On the 5th of July, in Barcelona, Myhealth coordination team met Vanessa Grotti (Principal Investigator, Anthropologist) and Nina Sahraoui (Post-doctoral Research Associate), representatives of EU BorderCare project, which aims to facilitate the accessibility of healthcare services for undocumented pregnant immigrant women giving birth at EU’s peripheries (mainly at refugee camps close to EU external borders). EUBorderCare also focuses on the empirical analysis of personal and institutional relations of care and control in the context of pregnancy and childbirth in some of Europe’s most densely crossed borderlands in France, Greece, Italy and Spain.

 

The participants exchanged views on the current, cross-cutting activities of both EC financed projects, engaged in a reciprocal stakeholder collaboration by finding common ground of cooperation at disseminating of both project outcomes and activities, including MyHealth mapping questionnaires, needs surveys among professional contacts.

 

EUBorderCare’s project outcome is raising awareness on the growing phenomenon of EU migrant maternity care through an initiative by launching ‘ERCCOMICS’, available on the following website:  https://www.erccomics.com/comics/expecting
