The Report


The UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health including commentaries and side papers 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.

The Commission held a series of international and regional launches and events globally, including at the International Launch of the Commission at an Official Side Event to the Global Compact for Migration on December 8th in Marrakesh, Morocco; and a series of regional policy roundtables on universal health coverage and migration between January-September 2019.
