WMA resolution on migration

October 11, 2018


At the recent World Medical Association (WMA) Annual Assembly in Reykjavik, a resolution was passed on migration, urging members and the international health community to advocate for the necessary healthcare for migrants in countries that welcome and receive large numbers of migrants.

“The WMA emphasizes the role of physicians to actively support and promote the rights of all people to medical care based solely on clinical necessity, and protest against legislation and practices contrary to this fundamental right.”
