Migration call for good practices
29 Jan 2024

Washington, D.C., 29 January 2024 (PAHO)- The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) is launching a call for Good Practices on Health and Migration in the Region of the Americas to strengthen actions aimed at protecting the right to health of migrants and ensure equitable access to quality health services. 

This call also aims to promote the exchange of knowledge of diverse interventions that address the needs of migrants and serve as a guide for the search of short-, medium-, and long-term solutions in diverse geographic areas and contexts. 
Participation is encouraged from a diverse array of actors, including:  

  • National Authorities (public health institutions and other related sectors) 
  • Academic institutions 
  • Civil society organizations 
  • Non-governmental organizations 
  • Media agencies 
  • Research institutions 
  • Experts (professionals, policymakers, researchers) 

Those interested can submit initiatives, interventions, solutions, methodologies, or procedures that protect the right to health of migrants and guarantee equal access to quality health services. These should demonstrate results that can potentially be adapted and/or replicated in different contexts and by different countries and territories or organizations. Similarly, proposals may consider technical cooperation with PAHO if they are adequately described. 

Proposals will be accepted at the regional, sub-regional and local (country) levels and that address the general theme and may be submitted in English, Spanish, or Portuguese. 

How to Submit

Proposals will be received until the 29th of March 2024, only through PAHO's Good Practices in Public Health Portal. Guidelines and further details are available here.
