Migrants Moving Through Mexico and their Access to Health and Social Services

30th June 2022


This webinar is in partnership with Interactive Health. IHL provides strategic advice ranging from designing and implementing new national digital health systems and interventions, supporting primary and pre-hospital digital healthcare at remote locations, to devising bespoke leadership programmes for the health and education sectors. Their clients include national and local governments, government organisations such as the NHS, leading universities, NGOs and large corporate organisations.

Migrants from Mexico, Central America and South America in transit through Mexico are acutely vulnerable to infectious disease including COVID 19 and lack resources to protect themselves . Child migrants are also  at risk of violence. Our team worked with NGOs in Mexico as well as academia and local government to assess migrants' needs and examine their health and social care access during the pandemic.

1) Understand the general context and drivers  of migration via Mexico to the US.
