Addressing Health Vulnerabilities of Migrants in Large Migration Flows

REPORT OF AN INTER-REGIONAL ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION ON: ADDRESSING HEALTH VULNERABILITIES OF MIGRANTS IN LARGE MIGRATION FLOWS

The report summarizes the presentations and deliberations of the Inter-Regional Roundtable discussion on “Addressing Health Vulnerabilities of Migrants in Large Migration Flows”, organised by Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and International Organization for Migration (IOM) on 25 April 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland. Discussing the experiences of countries encountering large unprecedented migration movements, the Roundtable gathered 40 experts from Asian and European governments, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and academia, and provided an avenue for an interactive and analysis of the public health challenges faced within the two regions.

Key recommendations of the discussions include delivery of adequate migrant sensitive healthcare services, strengthening capacity of health systems and health providers, promotion of dialogue among different national-level institutions and across countries, facilitation of migrants’ integration into mainstream society, changing the negative narrative around migration, and highlighting shared responsibility of addressing health needs of migrants among governments, international organizations and NGOs.
