Pre-Migration Health Activities - 2022 Overview

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) Migration Health Assessment Programme (HAP), as part of the Migration Health Division, delivers pre-migration health activities as one of the most well-established and longest-standing services provided by the Organization. These activities are undertaken in the context of regular international migration at the request of receiving country governments and vary in scope according to the receiving country protocols and the epidemiological profile of the country of origin. This report is an annual overview illustrating the range of IOM HAP activities undertaken globally in 2022 and demonstrates IOM's commitment to the promotion of the health and well-being of migrants and host communities.
