Health of refugees and migrants: Practices in addressing the health needs of refugees and migrants

In response to a request, in World Health Assembly Resolution 70.15, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a global call for information, including case studies, on current policies and practices and lessons learned in the promotion of refugee and migrant health. This document is based on information gathered from the contributions from Member States, IOM, UNHCR, ILO, other partners, and WHO regional and country offices in response to that global call, as well as literature searches and reports available in the public domain. They are therefore presented without any claim to completeness. Furthermore, unless otherwise stated, WHO has not independently verified the information from the contributions. It should be noted that this is a living document that will be updated periodically as new information becomes available.
