Launch of Lancet Migration European Regional Hub
The new Lancet Migration European Regional Hub, co-led by Lancet Migration & the Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies, aims to make a positive impact on the lives of people who migrate to or within Europe, and the environments in which they live, through multidisciplinary research, leadership, engagement, dissemination of research, and advocacy.

The panel will focus on the challenges and opportunities in migration and health in the European Region, and how the European Regional Hub can advance migration health through sustainable multidisciplinary research, policy, and practice.
