Description: 

This article examines gaps and good practices in ensuring social protection in health for migrant workers and argues that, as both migration and health are enablers for development, health should be discussed in global migration and development debates. The GFMD and the High Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development (HLD) are important venues to address the health of migrant workers, and this article provides views on how policies and multisectoral partnerships can promote healthier and safer labour migration for development.
