Description: 

IOM’s Health, Border & Mobility Management (HBMM) is a conceptual and operational framework with the ultimate goal of improving prevention, detection and response to the spread of diseases along the mobility continuum (at points of origin, transit, destination and return) and its Spaces of Vulnerability (SOVs), where migrants and mobile populations (MMPs) interact with stationary, local communities. With a particular focus on border areas, HBMM unifies border management with health security and ultimately supports the implementation of the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005).

HBMM also endeavors to build human mobility competent health systems at both the community and primary health care levels, which is essential for global health security. Such systems are responsive to the dynamics of human mobility and are inclusive, ensuring Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for all, including migrants and mobile populations (MMPs), regardless of their status.
