PAGEL: NEW PROJECT ON WELFARE ON THE COLOMBIAN-VENEZUELAN BORDER
The PAGEL project is an initiative of CAPAZ associate, University of Freiburg in Germany, Universidad Francisco de Paula Santander, and Universidad Popular del Cesar in Colombia. We worked with Universidad Francisco de Paula Santander in 2019, as it was the winner of our annual call for research projects. The project Skills for the public life of health workers in Catatumbo was implemented with funds from CAPAZ. Click here to learn more about the project.
PAGEL is funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) and is intended to “prevent and mitigate the effects of migration and violence on health on the Colombian-Venezuelan border: A contribution to the Colombian peace process”. The project is executed with personnel who provide care for the migrant population in the health and justice sectors in Colombia’s departments of Cesar and Norte de Santander.
Contribute to improving the mental and physical health of Venezuelan migrants and the Colombian population on the border.
Support the empowerment of health programs and the criminal justice system through joint analysis and interventions (magnitude of migration and its effects, determining factors, possible solutions to the main challenges, emphasis on mutual learning).
