Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, globally, IOM has been working with Member States and partners to prepare and respond to the outbreak, with operational and technical support in the areas of migration and health.The aim of IOM’s COVID-19 activities is to propose ways to support countries that may need additional resources – financial, technical or operational –for preparedness or response to help ensure further infections are prevented, and to assist health systems so they have the capacity to cope with COVID-19 from a mobility perspective.
In coordination and partnership with relevant actors at global,regional and national levels, IOM will contribute to the overall objective of the WHO’s COVID-19 Global StrategicPreparedness and Response Plan (SRP) to halt further transmission of COVID-19, and mitigate the impact of the outbreak,including the social impact. The International Organization for Migration, UN Migration (IOM) has more than 65 years of experience – 430+ offices and14,000+ staff worldwide, including thousands working specifically on health and community engagement – helping people on the move stay healthy.
