Resolution on Promoting the Health of Refugees and Migrants
Following lengthy discussions, Member States adopted a draft resolution on Promoting the Health of Refugees and Migrants on 31 January, the penultimate day of the Executive Board meeting.
The resolution asks WHO to set out priorities and guiding principles on this urgent health issue at the next World Health Assembly (WHA) – which will be held in Geneva in May 2017 – and calls for a draft global action plan on the health of refugees and migrants to be adopted at the 72nd WHA in 2019.
