1. Background

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is a dynamic and growing
inter-governmental organization, with 162 member states. IOM is committed to
the principle that “humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and
society”. Established in 1951 and now active in over 440 field locations
worldwide, IOM works with partners, government and civil society to promote
international cooperation to address operational challenges of migration and
mobility, assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems,
and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees
and internally displaced people. IOM addresses the migratory phenomenon from
an integral and holistic perspective, including links to development, in order
to maximize its benefits and minimize its negative effects. Migration Health
IOM’s Migration Health programmes address the health needs of individual
migrants as well as the public health needs of transit and host communities by
assisting governmental and nongovernmental partners in the development and
implementation of relevant policies and programmes. In regard to the field of
migration health IOM focuses on three strategic programme areas:

1) Migration Health Assessments and Travel Assistance: Providing health
assessment services to migrants and refugees on behalf of destination
governments. Services include physical examination, laboratory diagnostics,
vaccinations, DNA testing, and treatment of excludable conditions as per the
specific guidelines of receiving governments.
2) Health Promotion and Assistance for Migrants: Providing health services
that meet the specific needs of migrants and their host communities, across a
wide range of priority areas such as sexual and reproductive health and rights
(SRHR); mental health; immunizations; environmental health and hygiene;
outbreak preparedness; and communicable disease prevention, surveillance, and
control. Furthermore, this programme area involves health promotion and
education on migration health, while developing government and community
capacity in identifying and responding to the health-related challenges of
migration and population mobility.
3) Migration Health Assistance for Crisis-affected Populations: Supporting
governments and populations during the acute phase and in the aftermath of
emergencies by managing health issues related to the mass movement of people
and arranging medical evacuation for individuals. Activities include
psychosocial assistance, communicable disease control. Partnership on Health
and Mobility in East and Southern Africa (PHAMESA) IOMs Migration Health
programmes are implemented under the flagship regional framework, “Partnership
on Health and Mobility in East and Southern Africa” (PHAMESA). The overal
objective of PHAMESA is to contribute to improved standards of physical,
mental and social wellbeing of migrants and migration affected populations in
East and Southern Africa by responding to their health needs throughout all
phases of the migration process which enables them to substantially contribute
to the socioeconomic development of their host, transit and origin
communities.

PHAMESA has four key outcome areas that are Aligned to the 2008 World Health
Assembly Resolution 61.17 on the Health of Migrants, as well as the
corresponding

Operational Framework:

Outcome 1: Improved monitoring of migrants’ health to inform policy and
practice.
Outcome 2: Policies and legislations comply with obligations with respect to
the right to health of migrants.
Outcome 3: Migrants and migration-affected communities have access to and use
