About the Event
Climate displacement, the war in Syria, the outbreak of infectious diseases: these are just a few of the humanitarian crises calling for a response in 2019, and social workers were often among the ranks of the first responders. At this event, CSSW Research Scientist Anindita Dasgupta (bio), Ph.D., will discuss evidence-based practices used by social workers to meet the health needs of Syrian refugee women in Jordan and Turkey under the aegis of a Columbia-wide project known as ASPIRE—Advancing Solutions in Policy Implementation, Research and Engagement for Refugees. Specifically, she will present the initial findings from ASPIRE’s first two studies:
- Women ASPIRE, looking at the health needs of Syrian refugee women
- Providers ASPIRE, considering how the crisis impacts refugee service providers in Turkey.
Dasgupta is a leading scholar on reproductive health and refugees’ health, and has worked on these issues in South Asia, the Middle East, and Central Asia.
