Health and Returned Migrants from the UK and Spain post-Brexit

Full title of project: RETORNO: Interventions on Social Determinants of Health – A comparative study of returned migrants from the UK and Spain post-Brexit referendum.

Funder: European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 894303.

RETORNO study will develop an evidence-based, context-sensitive theory of how intra-EU returned migrants’ health could be improved using the case study of return migration between the UK and Spain post-Brexit referendum.

EU return migration health data is an excellent example of complexity: it is scarce and inevitably heterogeneous, and varies by country, population and setting. The success of interventions on social determinants of health for returned migrants is highly context-dependent, not only in individual countries, but also on the comparison of primary versus secondary care and for people with acute or severe conditions, long-term, compared to healthy migrants.

Primary investigator: Dr Pilar Serrano-Gallardo; Co-investigators: Dr Ana Manzano, Prof. Adrian Favell, Dr Roxana Barbulescu.
