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.
Call for papers – Health, risk, and resilience: Transcending the biological, the psychological, the social, and the structural in migration and integration
The successful candidate will support day-to-day strategic activities and liaison to strengthen the Division’s ability to bridge the needs of migrants and IOM Member States through evidence-based policy activities, and thus to ensure the delivery of equitable, rights-based and accessible migration health programmes and initiatives for its beneficiaries.
IOM will commission a qualitative research aimed to identify and analyse the risk factors, determinants and conditions of migrant workers’ vulnerability that give rise to exploitation and abuse that can amount to modern slavery.
To start global health’s decolonization and rewrite its narrative, more Global South scholars and practitioners must begin writing and talking about global health – its analysis, institutions, and processes – as they see it. There is nothing to fear about sounding politically incorrect – after all, there is nothing politically correct about colonialism. But there is always room for a respectful conversation.
This Special Issue aims to contribute to knowledge and policy design and implementation by providing much needed evidence on international migration. We welcome papers on international migration, including migrant workers in precarious work, refugees, and asylum seekers. We welcome research that focuses on migration movements in high-income countries as well as, and perhaps more importantly, on research focusing on the large migration flows from Global South countries.
