Our next phase of work: Lancet Migration 

On February 5th 2020 a panel discussion and event marked the start of: 'Lancet Migration: global collaboration to advance migration health'. The Lancet Migration global collaboration is a new collaboration between The Lancet and researchers, implementers, and others in the field of migration and health that aims to address evidence gaps and drive policy change, building on the recommendations of the UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health published in December 2018.  The full recording of the event can be viewed here.

2018 UCL-Lancet Commission  on Migration and Health


The 2018 UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health including commentaries and associated publications can be found here.  For interactive figures from the report please click here. The Commission addresses one of the defining issues of our time and presents evidence based approaches to inform public discourse and policy to address migration as a global health priority, including proposing recommendations for maximising the health of all people on the move. It is the result of a two-year project led by 20 leading experts from 13 countries, and with 46 contributing authors on the final report and is the most comprehensive review of the available evidence on migration and health to date.

Policy and public engagement


Over the last year the Commission has held a series of national, regional and international research and policy events, and has made official interventions at the Global Compact for Migration, the World Health Assembly and the UN General Assembly. A series of regional policy roundtables on universal health coverage and migration were also organised between January-September 2019.
