Migration Health and Development Research Initiative (MHADRI) Mission Statement:
To advance evidence-informed global migration health policies and practices (through the unique international migration health researchers' collaboration) that will improve the health and wellbeing of people and communities affected by migration.
Through international research collaborations, MHADRI will:
  • Advance ethical inter-disciplinary research at the nexus of health and migration; 
  • Include peoples affected by migration and key stakeholders in research;
  • Produce and disseminate high-quality evidence; and
  • Drive policy and practice change working with policymakers, practitioners and relevant stakeholders.

Principles and Values:

  • Ensure meaningful representation from researchers/scholars from the Global South, and commitment to engage and capacity build research in migration in developing nations.
  • Researchers/scholars' participation not only from universities but from civil society groups, governments and UN agencies. 
  • Support early to mid-career researchers. 
Membership: Active researchers, from any discipline and organizational background -  including early career researchers, graduate students and NGO-based researchers - currently working on researching any aspect(s) of the relationship between migration and health are invited to join the network.  Any person who has or is currently undertaking research on advancing knowledge on any aspect(s) of the relationship between migration and health is eligible to be MHADRI network member, especially researchers based in Global South contexts, from developing nations or those classified as low-income, lower-middle-income or upper-middle-income countries. Please click on Membership Guide to register.
