Description: 

This report illustrates IOM’s health activities in 2014 and presents key achievements in the three main migration health programme areas: (a) migration health assessments and travel health assistance; (b) health promotion and assistance for migrants; and (c) migration health assistance for crisis-affected populations. The report also highlights emerging themes in migration and health – learning the importance of understanding population mobility and its health risks in the context of disease outbreaks from the 2014‒2015 Ebola crisis in West Africa; and the global public health value of migration health assessments. This report aptly illustrates IOM’s growing multidimensional migration health activities and global partnerships. Guided by the Resolution on the Health of Migrants adopted by the World Health Assembly in May 2008, the report demonstrates IOM’s commitment to advance the health of migrants and their families worldwide, as well as support IOM Member States in addressing migration health challenges.
