The purpose of this research is to:
"It is imperative, during this time, that we understand how individuals are responding to the public health and social distancing measures being put in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Examining these patterns across diverse and vulnerable populations is key. Support from Elrha for this project to understand the differential impact of COVID-19 on Venezuelan migrant refugee will allow a better understanding of this and future pandemics."
"Colombia’s system of universal health insurance generates an invaluable data base (called RIPS). It provides a unique opportunity to monitor the impact of social distancing and other policies across Colombia and to ascertain how results compare between Colombian and Venezuelan migrant residents."
Three main activities will be undertaken to collect the needed data to answer our research questions:
The analysis and results will lead to the development of policy briefs, dissemination to key stakeholders, including Venezuelan migrant refugees and academics, as well as at least two manuscripts. One will examine the uptake and implementation of public health and social distancing measures across 60 municipalities and one will examine the differential use and costs of health care services for Venezuelan migrant refugees and Colombian citizens.
