Effective Policy and Research

Advancing policy and research that more effectively address the impacts of migration on health is our priority. We work to improve individual health outcomes and to promote the right to health for all migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in our communities. 


Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us—except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.

Policy and Research Working Group

As we launch, we are developing a Policy and Research Working Group. We believe that collaboration across disciplines and countries will spur innovative responses to our regional needs. The Policy and Research Working Group consists of health advocates, policy experts and healthcare professionals and will:

  • Provide expert opinion and inform policy development processes

  • Actively contribute to strategic consolations, panels, high level meetings, dialogues, reviews and expert exchanges

  • Lead on collecting and developing evidence on real experiences of migrants to inform policy

  • Advocate for evidenced-based actions which improve the health and wellbeing of migrants

  • Monitor policy implementation and implications
