Dear Friends & Colleagues,
Please find our Lancet Migration Global Statement on Covid-19: ‘Leaving no one behind in the Covid-19 Pandemic: a call for urgent global action to include migrants & refugees in the Covid-19 response’ just published on our website here: https://www.migrationandhealth.org/migration-covid19 or directly available to download here: https://bit.ly/3a1Zyt4.
To join our global call to action for urgent inclusion of migrants & refugees in the Covid-19 response please add your signature here: https://forms.gle/8AGWZMh8WjZbYZdR8. Please share widely with your colleagues and organizations you are connected with so that we can create global momentum around this topic. On social media, you can tag @MIGHCommission and use the hashtags #LancetMigration #LeaveNoOneBehind #COVID19
The intention is for this to form a platform for further migration and covid-19 topic-specific statements/briefings, based on the initial calls within this document; and for this call to action to support further advocacy in your region.
Over the next week or so we will also start to upload regional/country/situational briefings on Covid19 and migration, to our Lancet Migration website; and we are also still looking for contributors for regional briefings, so please do email if interested.
We welcome engagement on any of these activities, please connect further by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
