Profiling Migration and Health in Pakistan

In 2019 P2i was a part of a research workshop organized by Queen Mary University of London in Nepal on migration and health. Through this workshop, P2i became a part of a South-Asian network of institutions working on migration and health-related research and policy work. Following this, in July 2019 P2i was invited to a week-long series of research and advocacy related events on migration, gender, and health in the South-African context, by the Wits University. During this week at Johannesburg, P2i was part of a panel discussion on the colonial narrative of global health and participated in the Lancet launch on Migration as well.

In November, P2i experts became a part of the Manila Consensus Group, steered by the IOM, during the Manila workshop on bibliometric analysis for migration and health.
The team leads later presented a paper on mapping of migrant health in Pakistan at the International Conference on Migration and Health organized by the Quaid-e-Azam University in Islamabad.
P2i is now working with partners on mapping the health status of migrants in Pakistan, as well as Pakistani migrants abroad, to advance evidence-informed migration health policies and practices that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of people and communities affected by migration.
