Description: 

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) features health as a cross-cutting priority with references to health and healthcare access in several objectives. Together with the SDGs, the World Health Assembly (WHA) Resolutions on the health of migrants (WHA 61.17, 2008) and on promoting the health of refugees and migrants (WHA 70.15, 2017) and the forthcoming WHO Global Action Plan on promoting the health of refugees and migrants (2019), implementation and review of the GCM now provide a tremendous opportunity to promote the health of migrants and related multi-sectoral partnerships and policies.
