Along with other partners, MHADRI participated in a high-level South African and regional policy roundtable held in Johannesburg, South Africa in July 2019. This briefing outlines the key recommendations from the discussion.
This report captures a two-day programme of presentations, panel discussions and group discussions at the regional symposium on gender, migration, health and public policy.
Denise Spitzer and colleagues argue that improving the health and wellbeing of migrants requires attention to their diverse circumstances and building inclusive healthcare
Helena Legido-Quigley and colleagues argue that “health systems in which no-one is left behind can be created, but it requires political will and concerted action by everyone.”
To truly “leave no one behind” there must be a concerted global effort to build alliances to include migration and health in all policies.
Better health for migrants isn’t simply a moral imperative. It is an evidence informed, economically wise choice that will improve health for all. It is a choice that must be made in defiance of populism, prejudice, and political expediency.
In partnership with the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), we are excited to launch a new series on migration and health.
