This article was exclusively written for The European Sting by Mr Bruno Ramos Ribeiro Santos, a twenty-four years old medical student at the University Center São Lucas (UniSL), Porto Velho, Rondônia, Brazil. He is affiliated to the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA), cordial partner of The Sting. The opinions expressed in this piece belong to the writer and do not necessarily reflect IFMSA’s view on the topic, nor The European Sting’s one.


The Global Compact for Safe Orderly and Regular Migration intends to provide cooperation on the governance of international migration, from which states can decide the most critical migrational problems and how to address them, that way bestowing sovereignty on the implementation of programs based on theirs migration perception and faculty.

Endorsed on the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants the United Nations acknowledge the need to assure safety and dignity to migrants integrating them and combating xenophobia, racism and discrimination; create guidelines to treat those in vulnerable situations; support countries receiving refugees and to increase global governance of migration.

As Kati Kristiansson and collaborators concluded while studying the gene identification on isolated populations, each community has its own disease pattern witch in this case is genomic modulated, but other factors are just as important to comprehend the different epidemiologies, such as ambiental, cultural, economic, social and biological.

These new approaches propone fundamental human rights to the migrants and refugees, ensuring access to a decent healthcare capable of providing assistance based on theirs physiological, pathological and genetic differences, not only restoring or preventing from illness but contributing with a biopsychosocial program.

Brazilian public health already has programs that are specific to communities that are culturally different from the majority of citizens. The people that benefit from these projects are indigenous, riverside and populations with high risk of developing some diseases. Therefore the health sistem is capable of build a strategy that take into consideration others idiosyncrasies.

With the migration of people some diseases can generate problems, as faced with the migration of venezuelans and epidemic of measles in 2018. As the healthcare has less than needed experienced physicians working this new demand and diseases could really affect the health statues of brazilian citizens. Some academic changes can also happen preparing medical students to comply with different populations needs, providing the best care possible and honoring their dignity and wellbeing.

Hence, the Global Compact for Safe Orderly and Regular Migration will make changes in how we treat diseases and epidemiology, but with time it can also generate knowledge and experiences that are fundamental to the development of a well built healthcare.
