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 particular focus on border areas, HBMM unifies border management with health security and ultimately supports the implementation of the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005).
