Introducing a Global Alliance: Pioneering the Advancement of Migration and Health

An impressive global coalition has emerged to advance the field of migration and health. This coalition seeks to challenge and debunk the harmful, unfounded myths surrounding the intersection of migration and health that have gained undeserved acceptance and are often used to rationalize exclusionary policies.

Migration, a complex and multifaceted phenomenon, has played a pivotal role in shaping the current generation. Its far-reaching effects have led to a crisis that has engulfed many democratic nations. Exploiting public anxiety about migration, populist leaders have stoked fears, fanned the flames of nationalism and xenophobia, and triggered an alarming rise in hate crimes.

A noble goal: Moving Forward with Purpose

At the heart of this collective effort is a noble and unwavering mission – to provide irrefutable evidence that fosters cooperation and spurs action on one of the most critical challenges of the 21st century.

Migration as a determinant of health remains an underexplored area that deserves careful study. By harnessing the power of the most robust evidence base available, we have the potential to make tremendous improvements in the health and well-being of migrants, host populations, and even those who choose to remain at home.

This Alliance stands as a beacon of hope, working to dispel misinformation, foster collaboration, and effect positive change in the ever-evolving landscape of migration and health. Through tireless advocacy and unwavering commitment, we strive to reshape the narrative and break down barriers to ensure a brighter, healthier future for all.
