Just as in many countries, the Covid-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges to the Hungarian society in a variety of ways. It was a test to the health care system which had already lacked resources even before the pandemic: deteriorating infrastructure, worsening hygienic conditions, and growing scarcity of doctors and nurses had impaired the health care sector. While it seems that the country survived with a relatively little loss in the first wave of the epidemic between February and May, some political and social changes will remain with us even after the pandemic passes.
Objectives: This study aimed to examine the link between human mobility and the number of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)–infected people in countries. Study design: Our data set covers 144 countries for which complete data are available. To analyze the link between human mobility and COVID-19–infected people, our study focused on the volume of air travel, the number of airports, and the Schengen system. Methods: To analyze the variation in COVID-19–infected people in countries, we used negative binomial regression analysis.
The purpose of the program is to i.) provide up-to-date, easily accessible and reliable information about assisted voluntary return and complex reintegration assistance to potential beneficiaries and then ii.) to facilitate the voluntary and orderly return of up to 88 beneficiaries iii.) to help up to 6 vulnerable returnees and returnees with chronic medical conditions during their reintegration in their countries of origin iv.) to provide complex reintegration support for 6 returnees to their countries of origin in order to facilitate income generating activities, v.) to help 4 (additional
Background Within health systems, equity between migrants and native-born citizens is still a long way from being achieved. Benchmarking the equitability of policies on migrant health is essential for monitoring progress and identifying positive and negative aspects of national policies. For this purpose, the 2015 round of the Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) was expanded to include a strand on health, in a collaborative project carried out between 2013 and 2017 in 38 countries.
This project aims to carry out capacity building activities, and awareness raising interventions amongst the two target groups (Child care, education and health experts- Vulnerable groups at risk of being trafficked) in order to understand and respond appropriately to human trafficking issues in the Hungarian context. This will be accomplished through organising seminars throughout the country, information and awareness raising campaign and a train the trainer (ToT) workshop.
The purpose of the programme is to i.) provide up-to-date, easily accessible and reliable information about assisted voluntary return to potential beneficiaries and then 2.) to facilitate the voluntary and orderly return of up to 870 beneficiaries, 3.) to help up to 60 vulnerable returnees and returnees with chronic medical conditions during their reintegration in their countries of origin and finally 4.) to collect and analyze the feedback of beneficiaries with regards to the services.
The proposed project is part of a partnership of 7 organisations from Turkey, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Netherlands, UK and Hungary under KA2 - Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices (KA204 - Strategic Partnerships for adult education of Erasmus+). The project will support adult educators to extend and develop skills and competences in order to achieve their socio-educational and professional development.
This joint initiative aims to analyse and exchange best practices in particular areas related to counter-trafficking in minors in South-Eastern Europe. Further to national assessments and discussions in selected countries (Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Romania, and Turkey), complemented by desk research and analysis on latest trends, the 2008 Budapest Seminar will gather a range of actors including researchers, policy makers and practitioners involved in counter-trafficking - with particular focus on minors.
