Article featured in Global Health Diplomacy - Fall of 2013. The article discussed the challenge to elevate the health of migrants to the post-2015 development framework that is discussed at the highest level by political leaders around the world. IOM believes there are three key arguments why the health of migrants should be addressed in the post-2015 development agenda: 1) migrants have a right to health; 2) including migrants in health systems improves public health outcomes; and 3) healthy migrants contribute to positive development outcomes.
