The Migration Health and Development Research Initiative (MHADRI) aims to advance evidence-informed global policies and practices that will improve the health and wellbeing of people and communities affected by migration.
The network aims to develop an international community of practice focused on the generation of quality, ethical, and rights-based research to inform the development of policy and programming to improve the health and wellbeing of people on the move.
