Parental Migration and Young Children's Health: Identifying the Consequences for Children Left Behind


12 pm - 1 pm

Mission Hall, Room 1406
550 16th St.
San Francisco, CA 94158

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 Treleaven, PhD candidate in social and behavioral sciences at UCSF will present results from her mixed-methods 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, access to care, and equity globally.
