Migration Health Annual Report 2018
The Migration Health Division of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) acts with Member States, UN agencies and other partners in the international community to meet the operational challenges of migration, advance understanding of migration health issues, encourage socioeconomic development through migration, and work towards ensuring respect of the human dignity and well-being of migrants. This report provides a snapshot of IOM’s health activities in 2018 and presents key achievements under three broad themes: (a) improved access to health services for migrants; (b) outbreak preparedness and response; and (c) international cooperation and global partnership in migration health. The report illustrates IOM’s growing multidimensional migration health activities and partnerships in 2018, and demonstrates IOM’s commitment to advancing the health of migrants and their families worldwide, as well as supporting IOM Member States in addressing migration health challenges.
