Policy brief: Enhancing Access to Services for Migrants in the Context of COVID-19 Preparedness, Prevention, Response and Beyond

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.

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 COVID19 and its impact. To that end, this briefing, prepared by the Network's Thematic Working Group on Access to Services, 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.
