Get involved! Reviewing publications for the iom migration health evidence portal for covid-19

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.


“Ensuring the integration of migrants and refugees in the response to COVID-19 requires knowing and understanding the existing scientific evidence. This mapping activity aims to identify and assess research publications on COVID-19 focusing on migration, migrants and human mobility; specifically mapping research productivity on COVID-19 in the context of migration health by author, country, institution/ organization, health theme, and migrant topic (i.e. migrant type and type of movement).

Results from this mapping activity will provide guidance to MHD colleagues and the public on concerns relevant to COVID-19 and migration health by making this available in the Migration Health Research Portal. The COVID-19 page in the portal will feature key publications.”

Migration Health Evidence Portal for COVID-19

The IOM Migration Health Research Portal has established an interactive, open-source, searchable (and downloadable) 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.
