The WHO Health and Migration Programme is pleased to inform you that two calls for expression of interest for technical consultations with academic experts and with Non-State Actors have been recently launched. More information on submissions, the selection process, and eligibility criteria can be found at the links below:
- Call for expression of interest for technical consultations with academic experts as part of the WHO Global Research Agenda Setting on Health and Migration
- Call for expression of interest for technical consultations with Non-State Actors as part of the WHO Global Research Agenda Setting on Health and Migration
The deadline for applications for both calls is 1 November 2022 24:00 (midnight) CET.
The series of technical consultations will contribute to the formation of the first WHO global research agenda on health and migration. The expert consultations will be the start of further research agenda-setting, engaging at global, regional, and country levels over the next few years. In addition, these technical consultations with academia, civil society, and WHO regional offices and headquarters, will also inform the next steps of the WHO Global Action Plan on promoting the health of refugees and migrants.
The purpose of these open calls is to invite academic experts and civil society organizations to attend technical consultations. The consultations will aim to identify research gaps and opportunities globally in health and migration, and subsequently in later consultations determine global research priorities. Part of the consultation will be structured around the WHO triple billion themes of: universal health coverage, healthier populations, and health emergencies, as they relate to migration and displacement. The intention is to engage stakeholders across all regions and countries who have expertise in the field of migrant and refugee health.
