International Organization for Migration & International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies & The Group of Friends of Migration

Join the International Organization for Migration, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the Group of Friends of Migration for a high-level virtual policy discussion on Advancing Migrants’ Access to Universal Health Coverage in times of COVID-19 to commemorate UHC Day 2020. The event will take place on 10 December at 3:00-4:30PM CET. The pandemic highlights how interconnected human health is and clearly shows that migrants’ access to health coverage, including testing, diagnostics, treatment and vaccinations, is an imperative for everyone’s well-being. The event will bring together key stakeholders to discuss the importance of recognizing that migrants are particularly vulnerable to the devastating impacts of the crisis, yet also play a crucial role in preparedness and response efforts in the health sector as well as in other sectors equally essential, with a view to achieving UHC for all.
