Event description

Description

Summary: An increasing number of children are left behind globally as their parents migrate for work, including in Cambodia, where young children are often left in the care of their grandparents in rural villages. While these children may benefit from increased household income, their health may be negatively affected by their parents’ absence. Emily will present results from her quantitative and qualitative dissertation research on migration and the health of children left behind in Cambodia. She will also discuss the implications of large-scale migration for
children’s health status, access, and equity globally.
