written by Miriam Orcut

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: or directly available to download here:

To join our global call to action for urgent inclusion of migrants & refugees in the Covid-19 response please add your signature here:  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
