The Immigration and Health Subprogramme (SIS) was created in the Epidemiology and Public Health Biomedical Research Consortium (CIBERESP) in 2011. It was included in the Programme for the Biological, Behavioural and Structural Determinants in the Contraction and Spread of Communicable Diseases in Vulnerable Populations (DAPET Programme).
The purpose of SIS is to improve and monitor knowledge about the health status of the immigrant population in the Spanish State in connection with communicable and non-communicable diseases and with biological, structural and behavioural health determinants. The research activity of the SIS is cross-sectional and multidisciplinary where it coordinates and promotes collaborations and synergies between Groups that are part of the Subprogramme and in collaboration with other CIBERESP groups.

A. Research projects
1. MEISI Project
Changes in health and healthcare of immigrants and vulnerable populations, in the context of a crisis. Analysis of multiple sources of evidence. MEISI: a number of pieces of evidence on health, healthcare, immigration and vulnerable populations.
1.1. MEISI I: Access to and quality of healthcare of vulnerable populations in Spain in the context of the financial crisis.
1.2. MEISI II: Impact of the economic crisis on major infectious diseases to which mandatory reporting applies: population-based study.
1.3. MEISI II: Evolution of biological and structural determinants in an immigrant family cohort.
2. PELFI: Platform of Longitudinal Studies on Immigrant Families
The PELFI project is being conducted in Badalona, Alicante and Barcelona, and includes several immigrant family sub-cohorts:
2.1. MEISI II: Evolution of biological and structural determinants in an immigrant family cohort.
2.2. Work, immigration and health in an immigrant population cohort in Spain.
2.3. Relationship between the psychosocial environment of adolescents and the mental health (R.E.P.A.S.A.M.E.)
