Migration, Health and Wellbeing: Past & Present is a public engagement programme which aims to get people talking about the links between migration and health. It is based on historical research into the health experiences of people from Britain and Europe who migrated to Australia between 1945 and 1970, carried out by Dr Eureka Henrich at the Universities of Leicester (2014-17) and Hertfordshire (2018-19), and funded by the Wellcome Trust.

On this website you’ll find a virtual exhibition, ‘A Full Healthy Life’? Migration and Health in Post-War Australia, which examines the role health played in Australia’s post-war immigration programme. Have your own memories of health and migration? You can share them on the Your Stories page, and read those submitted by others. Head to Events to check out past and future talks and workshops, and get in touch if you would like to know or share more.
