Migrant Health Survey

Migration and Health is an emerging issue globally and in particular for the South Caucasus, being a volatile region. Considering that the health information systems in Georgia do not contain the routine data on health conditions and access to health care for migrant populations, while simultaneously lacking the data on specific disease prevalence among these vulnerable groups, the present Survey was initiated with the overall objective to strengthen the respective national surveillance systems of the country. Data obtained through the Survey will facilitate planning and implementing measures against primary non-communicable diseases (NCDs) risk factors, and will provide the basis for mainstreaming adequate programmatic response to ensure that psychosocial needs of diverse migrant populations are addressed and primary health care services are strengthened in view of migrantfriendly healthcare delivery.
