IOM's Vision on Migration Health


Migrants and mobile populations benefit from an improved standard of physical, mental and social wellbeing, which enables them to substantially contribute towards the social and economic development of their home communities and host societies.


IOM’s Strategic Objectives on Migration Health


IOM’s strategic objectives on migration health are derived from the 2008 World Health Assembly Resolution on the Health of Migrants (61.17) that recommends action along four pillars. These four pillars have been further operationalized and agreed during the Global Consultation on the Health of Migrants organized by WHO, IOM and the Government of Spain (Madrid, 2010):


Monitoring migrant health

Enable conducive policy and legal frameworks on migrant health

Strengthen migrant friendly health systems

Facilitate partnerships, networks and multi-country frameworks on migrant health
