About the ICMHD:

ICMHD believes the right to health applies to all people, including migrants, refugees, and all other people who find themselves on the move for political, economic or environmental reasons

ICMHD’s work is predicated on the belief that by protecting the health and welfare of people on the move, the public health, social development, and human security of the larger society is also enhanced.
