Migration Elucidation


Nearly 14% of the global population resides in a place other than where they were born, according to a new UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health.

 
But migration remains a highly politicized, deeply complex issue. Damaging myths that migrants spread disease or strain government services erroneously drive policies that erode the basic human rights of migrants. The Commission provides data to dispel misleading rhetoric while calling for global entities to prioritize migrant health.
 
“Migration is the defining issue of our time. How the world addresses human mobility will determine public health and social cohesion for decades ahead,” says Commission chair Ibrahim Abubakar.
