    UNU-IIGH is organising a research dissemination workshop on ‘Policy Gaps in Protecting the Health of Migrant Workers in Malaysia’. This research is part of a wider study examining policies protecting the health of migrant workers in Malaysia, China, and Thailand and returnees in Myanmar; and is funded by the China Medical Board and Asia Pacific Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.

    The workshop is convening government, NGO, industry and academic stakeholders to discuss the findings and identify sustainable responses, whilst bearing in mind that there is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to improving migrant health and welfare in Malaysia.

    The objectives are to critically appraise existing evidence on migrant health, and assess cultural competency and financing of the healthcare system for migrants. The workshop aims to identify leverage points to improve migrant health and welfare, notably on migrant access to healthcare, cultural competency of health systems, and other health protection policies affecting migrants in Malaysia.
