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 to improve the 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. The portal contains an searchable database, evidence briefs, profiles of COVID-19 research, and more.
MHADRI is undertaking a global mapping of training and capacity building/developing programmes in the field of migration and health. We are interested in initiatives being undertaken by all actors, including civil society organisations, government departments, academic institutions, and more.
We invite anyone involved in developing or implementing any training or capacity building initiative to participate in a short online survey.
The IOM Migration Health Division (MHD) Research and Epidemiology Unit is currently updating the Bibliometric Analysis of COVID-19 in the Context of Migration Health.
To efficiently do this, we are seeking the help of interested MHADRI members, specifically in screening and tagging relevant publications in which MHADRI members can participate as reviewers.
The MHD Research and Epidemiology Unit will then organize and deliver a quick training for the reviewers to guide them on the step-by-step process. Rest assured too that we will acknowledge your work in the paper.
September 2019 saw the launch of the BMJ’s migration health series, developed in collaboration with the Migration Health and Development Research Network (MHADRI) and the United Nations Migration agency. It aims to provide insights and perspectives by migrants and refugee communities, government authorities, researchers, policy makers, practitioners, civil society and industry groups in the issues, challenges and complexities in advancing migration health at national, regional and global levels.
This webinar discusses the implications of the US Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice proposed new rule – “Security Bars and Processing” – that would give them expansive authority to deny asylum and block and deport asylum seekers in the name of public health.
