The study group intends to explore the relationships  of different  migrant populations with the increasingly diversified and stratified health system in Berlin. During the pilot phase researchers from anthropology, public health and medicine will develop interdisciplinary research designs and establish a dense network connecting scientists, researchers and experts from healthcare institutions in and beyond Berlin. It is envisaged to establish models for the integration of qualitative data about subjective experiences of sickness and health, observations of interactions between patients, health staff and religious healers, and epidemiological data on social and biological aspects of disease.
