Nov 11, 2020: Serious about Universal Health Coverage? Get Serious about Migrant Health – Organized Session for HSR2020

A session that had been in the making since the members of MiHSA got together in Manila in November 2019 for a bibliometrics workshop.

Addressing theme 2 (migration) of the symposium, this interactive session aimed to share empirical insights and regional policy perspectives making health systems more responsive to migrants’ health. The session opened with a critical commentary on the WHO’s Global Action Plan (GAP) for promotion of health of refugees and migrants, followed by lightening talks presenting a range of country-level perspectives and contexts – government (Pakistan, Philippines), civil society (Pakistan) and academic scholars (India, UK). The session closed with Q&A on responsive policy design engaging the audience with popular poll on strategies to advance evidence-informed development of UHC plans. Featuring Dr Shabnum Sarfraz, Dr Joel, Dr Roomi Aziz,  Dr Divya Ravindranath and chaired by Dr Anuj Kapilashrami, you can view the recording here.
