Sweden Backs IOM Plan to Reduce Health Vulnerability of Migrants in East and Southern Africa

South Africa - IOM, with support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), is launching a project aimed at reducing the health vulnerability of migrants and people affected by migration in East and Southern Africa.

The project, Partnership on Health and Mobility in East and Southern Africa Phase II (PHAMESA II), builds on the success of PHAMESA I and the Partnership on HIV and Mobility in Southern Africa (PHAMSA) implemented over the past decade. 

PHAMESA II will respond to more comprehensive public health needs of migrants and communities affected by migration with a specific focus on spaces of vulnerability. These are areas where migration causes increased health vulnerability for everyone in that community, whether they are migrants or host communities.
