Migration and health are inextricably linked and key to sustainable development, as accentuated during the pandemic. Unless health service coverage and financial protection measures in all countries include migrants, especially those in vulnerable situations, universal health coverage (UHC) will not be truly universal. Nor will countries achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3.8 on access to health and SDG 10.7 on facilitating orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people.

In the lead-up to the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF), the Co-chairs of the Group of Friends of Universal Health Coverage and Global Health (Permanent Missions of Georgia, Japan, & Thailand to the United Nations), the World Health Organization, the International Organization for Migration, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies are organizing a 90-minute interactive information session on the health of migrants.

This information session will bring together member States and key international stakeholders from different sectors to discuss the global health and migration agenda, towards the IMRF and beyond, while sharing challenges and best practices at global and national levels.

The event is open to everyone but is particularly aimed at Member States and key international stakeholders.
