This course program provided comprehensive detail regarding evidence-based data and concepts of migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, and Internally Displaced People and their fundamental rights to access adequate health care. I appreciated the video clips and up-to-date information relevant to my understanding of this course!

Even after working with humanitarian organisations for several years and living as a migrant, I had so much to learn about the importance of the terminology used to differentiate between different types of migrants and refugees. I was surprised by the sheer number of refugees and migrants in the world today and what that means for us as rehabilitation professionals. Thank you for putting together such a thoughtful and informative course and bringing to the fore such an essential topic for practising healthcare workers and rehab professionals worldwide!

Thank you so much for facilitating this Massive Open Online Course! It is one of a kind, educative, insightful, informative and interactive. It is a course I would recommend to all professionals looking to work with displaced individuals during their careers. Again it will give them a heads up on not only what to expect but also a comprehensive understanding of the needs of displaced persons.

The course is so enriching! Due to the detailed essays and articles, I learned something I did not have much information about. Especially being from a populated country such as India, I was shocked by the statistics and databases. I look forward to learning more and adding to my skills.

The course has helped me to appreciate how much of a global problem it is currently in terms of displaced people. It has also oriented me to terminology concerning displaced people. In addition, it has increased my knowledge on issues relating to Human Rights and the health challenges faced by refugees. Lastly, it gave me an insight into the media coverage dynamics of displaced people.

After taking this course, I am confident that I know the difference between different terminologies for categorizing displaced persons. Furthermore, how the course touched on the issue of human rights and elaborated on the sensitive topic of media portrayal of a displaced person is genuinely remarkable!
Lylas Ali

Thank you, Plus for this opportunity! I have learnt a lot about the global context of displaced persons and their rights. I have been able to differentiate between a refugee, asylum seeker and stateless person. I have learnt about different types of migration and their causes. I was happy to know that Uganda is among the host countries for refugees! The course also shares statics on displaced persons. I hope to broaden my knowledge of understanding displaced persons, which will also help me in practice.
Mutesasira Henry

The course is essential for all specialists who work with the specified problems. The facts, the comments from the course participants, and the information were helpful for me as a specialist; they allowed me to understand better the personal issues of the people I work with due to the understanding of the global nature of the problem in general.
