Organization Description:
An intergovernmental organization established in 1951, IOM is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society.

IOM’s strategic objectives on migration health are derived from the 2008 World Health Assembly Resolution on the Health of Migrants (61.17) that recommends action along four pillars. These four pillars have been further operationalized and agreed during the Global Consultation on the Health of Migrants organized by WHO, IOM and the Government of Spain (Madrid, 2010):
(i) Monitoring migrant health (ii) Enable conducive policy and legal frameworks on migrant health (iii) Strengthen migrant friendly health systems (iv)
Facilitate partnerships, networks and multi-country frameworks on migrant health

TB is a social disease and migration as a social determinant of health increases TB-related morbidity and mortality among migrants and surrounding communities through several complex pathways. Migrants are particularly vulnerable to TB-related health inequities, in-adequate social protection, discrimi-nation, human-rights violations and stigmatization. Not addressing TB among migrants will have severe health, social and economic consequences for mi-grants and communities in origin, transit and destination countries.

IOM works closely with migrants, communities and Member States on various TB prevention, treatment and control initiatives, through its health assessment programmes for refugees and immigrants globally; community-based active detection and treatment projects, and TB control measures in crises.
