Migration is a phenomenon that involves 244 million people worldwide (nearly one billion if internal migrants are included), most of whom move in search of work and wellbeing. Globally, immigrants face a range of health disparities and barriers to social and economic integration, and efforts to seek solutions to these problems must be coordinated and multidisciplinary.

This 2-day conference brings together a renowned group of international experts in plenary, keynote and panel sessions on the demographic, occupational, economic and policy aspects of migration.
