In a time of unprecedented internal and international migration, and their relative public health impacts, the UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health provides a foundation for policy makers, advocates, health systems and communities to improve migration and health locally and globally.
With Cathy Zimmerman as senior author and including the support of Centre Co-director Karl Blanchet, the Commission is the result of a two-year project led by 20 leading experts from 13 countries, and includes new data analysis, with two original research papers, and represents the most comprehensive review of the available evidence to date. The report, including its recommendations to improve the public health response to migration, was launched on 8th December 2018 at the UN Intergovernmental Conference to adopt the Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration in Marrakech.

This guide is intended for humanitarian decision-makers and practitioners working in the field or with donor, international, national, or non-governmental organisations. It is intended to help with decisions around financing, supervision, delivery, or evaluation of humanitarian interventions. It defines evidence-informed decision making, explores when and which evidence may be of use, and advises how to choose evidence, where to source it from, and how to assess the quality.
