Enhancing Access to Services for Migrants in the Context of COVID-19 Preparedness, Prevention, and Response and Beyond
The United Nations Network on Migration is committed to supporting all partners in pursuit of the implementation of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, recognizing that this cooperative framework provides an invaluable tool for ensuring inclusive, collective responses to COVID-19 and its impact.
To that end, this briefing is part of a series by the Network looking at different aspects of the COVID-19
pandemic and how they relate to migrants and their communities. The document provides practical
guidance to States and other stakeholders for an improved common understanding of safe and inclusive access to services for migrants. The brief makes the case for enhanced access to services for migrants in the context of COVID-19 preparedness, prevention, and response – and beyond. We look forward to feedback from all partners, and to updating the proposed key messages, special considerations, practical recommendations and the repository of guidance tools on an ongoing basis.
