13. Access to antenatal care for undocumented mothers in Geneva, Switzerland @ Room 2 - BBB

Speaker: Caterina Montagnoli

Facilitator: Joeri Vermeulen

The health of migrants is determined by complex sets of factors such as healthcare coverage or integration policies. Migrants’ sexual and reproductive outcomes are usually poorer than those of locals are. Emerging research has conversely proved that maternal outcomes and antenatal care might not always be related. To explain the paradox on migrants’ reproductive practices reported in the literature, I will make use of an interdisciplinary approach, merging clinical data collection with social interventions. In this presentation I give an ovierview of the initiatives in the field for guaranteeing access to antenatal care and improve maternal outcomes among undocumented migrant mothers in Geneva. Qualitative and quantitative data presented were the object of an interdisciplinary review of the literature study conducted by the main presenter.
