The International Consultation on Pre-departure Health Assessments was held from 26th to 27th September 2017. Hosted by the Sri Lanka Ministry of Health with assistance from IOM, this successful event was attended by more than 80 academics, government representatives, and medical officers.
Some participants from the consultation also had the opportunity to further engage at the two-day Migrant Health and Development Research Initiative (MHADRI) Global Network Member Meeting held from 28th to 29th September. This international partnership of academic, policy and operational organizations provides research-based programming in the field of migration health. The MHADRI event provided a valuable opportunity to present the recommendations from the International Consultation on Pre-departure Health Assessments.
