Global Health Impact Map
UN Migration Agency Project
Activity Dates: 2017 to present
Country(ies): Malaysia, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, United States
We partner with the United Nations Migration Agency (IOM) to build the Agency’s capacity to provide care for US-bound refugees. Around the world, IOM physicians, nurses, laboratorians and other healthcare professionals are relied upon to provide high quality and standardized care to US-bound refugees. This project ensures that these health care workers receive the training necessary to equip them to care for the unique needs of displaced patients. Better care improves health, reduces costs for welcoming countries, decreases risk of transmissible infections, and improves refugee integration into local communities.
