The objective of the project is to promote migrants access to healthcare services and advance the recommendations of the WHA 70.15 on Promoting the health of migrants in line with regional and global commitments.

The project falls under a Joint Programme between the United Nations and the Government of Vietnam toward implementation of the National Target Programme on New Rural Development (NTP-NRD), or ‘Tam Nong’. IOM will conduct a policy-focused study on rural-urban labour migration with a component that focuses on migrant health. The ‘New Rural Areas’ established by Programme aim to provide higher quality of life and increased employment opportunities, and therefore, presumably fewer incentives to migrate.
