Register now and join us! This conference is designed to create a constructive policy dialogue among relevant stakeholder groups to identify and address the gaps related to:

  • Legislation and policies that impact health, lives, and livelihood of migrants;
  • Implementation to enhance access to, and utilization, of quality and culturally-appropriate health care; and
  • Research to identify the health needs of migrants, assess determinants of access to health and social services, and inform effective strategies to overcome the gaps.
