Advancing policy and research that more effectively addresses the impacts of migration on health is our priority. We work to improve individual health outcomes and to promote the right to health for all migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in our communities.
Policy and Research Working Group
As we grow, we are developing a Policy and Research Working Group. We believe that collaboration across disciplines and countries will spur innovative responses to our regional needs. The Policy and Research Working Group will consist of health advocates, policy experts and healthcare professionals and will: provide expert opinion and inform policy development processes; actively contribute to strategic consultations, panels, high level meetings, dialogues, reviews and expert exchanges; lead on collecting and developing evidence on real experiences of migrants to inform policy; advocate for evidence-based actions which improve the health and wellbeing of migrants; monitor policy implementation and implications.
If you’re interested in learning more, have ideas for a possible collaboration or want to participate in our working group, we look forward to hearing from you.
Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us – except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.Khaled Hosseini
