Migration and Covid-19 Forum
People on the move, whether they are economic migrants or forcibly displaced persons such asylum seekers, refugees, and internally displaced persons, should be explicitly included in the responses to the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. This global public health emergency brings into focus, and may exacerbate, the barriers to healthcare these populations face. Many migrant & refugee populations live in conditions where physical distancing and recommended hygiene measures are particularly challenging. The Covid-19 pandemic reveals the extent of marginalisation migrant & refugee populations face.
Building from the platform of Lancet Migration we felt it would be positive to form a ‘Migration and Covid-19 Forum’ to help to create a discussion forum across regions; to collate academic resources on the topic; and to advocate on various key migration health issues across the globe during this time.
We strongly feel that responses to Covid-19 must explicitly include all groups of migrants, and be based on fundamental public health principles, scientific evidence, and the values of compassion, solidarity and human rights.
Please therefore let us know if you would be interested in being part of this working group and forum by filling in the questions below.
