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.
We aim 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.
The IOM Migration Health Research Portal has established an interactive, open-source, searchable, repository of research publications on COVID-19 in relation to migrants, migration, and human mobility.
In partnership with MHADRI, migration health and COVID-19 related analysis, research, and commentaries will be analysed.
Join MHADRI, the IOM and Wits University in building an open source database of migration and health training resources.
We invite anyone involved in developing or implementing any training or capacity building initiative in the field of migration and health to participate in a short online survey.

On 25 May 2020, the 1st Symposium on Migration, Health and Integration will take place. The symposium, a collaboration between the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance/UNU-MERIT (with the Maastricht Centre for Global Health and the Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development) and the Radboud University Network on Migrant Inclusion (RUNOMI) in Nijmegen, will highlight the complex intersections between migration, health and integration through discussions around both research and practise.
The symposium will bring together academics, including students and early career researchers, health professionals, policymakers and representatives of civil society to discuss issues related to migrant health.
The event will also mark the official launch of the Health and Migration Collaborative Community website, a growing resource portal that provides short analytical reviews and other support materials for academics, practitioners, policymakers, and other stakeholders interested in issues related to migration and health.
