Lancet Migration Regional Hubs
Building on the previous regional approach of the UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health, through a regional hub approach, Lancet Migration aims to bring civil society, academics and policy makers together across regions. The following recommendations on public engagement, outlined by the Commission form the basis of the collaborations:
1. Engagement at multiple levels of public life to raise the profile of migration and health.
2. Engagement with regional partners to contribute to the global initiative.
3. Encouraging engagement at community level with the public, including migrants themselves and populations at all stages of
the migration process.
4. Supporting the formation of an inclusive global initiative that will bring together researchers, civil society, non-
governmental bodies and multilateral organisations.
The model of engagement, working closely with regional collaborating institutions and stakeholders, follows principles of regional consultation, including policy roundtables and research workshop, to form links between academia, civil society and public policy to encourage regional priority setting for migration and health research and action. The Lancet Migration Regional Hubs, are currently being formed, building on our previous collaboration and activities.
