Migration health assessments (MHAs) are one of IOM’s most well-established migration management services. At the request of receiving country governments, IOM provides migrants with physical and mental health evaluations for the purpose of assisting them with resettlement, international employment, obtainment of temporary or permanent visas, or enrolment in specific migrant assistance programmes. Reflecting national differences in immigration policies and practices, health assessment requirements and protocols vary among receiving countries. These requirements may be specific to certain diseases of public health concern, such as tuberculosis (TB), or they may be much broader.
