Description: 

The objective of this publication is primarily to promote respect by the State for the right to health for all those who migrate. Secondly, the publication aims more generally at guiding the reader through the myriad of norms and principles contained in international instruments impacting on migrating persons’ right to health. Finally, considering the importance of the application de iure and de facto of the human rights norms which are at the core of migrating persons’ protection, examples of compliance or non-compliance by States with relevant articles of human rights instruments have been added. It is hoped that this publication brings us one step closer in ensuring implementation of the law by way of policies, programmes and projects that are respectful of the human rights of all, including those who migrate.
