As the United Nations High-Level Meeting on UHC is approaching, Africa Japan Forum and APCASO are pleased to invite you to a panel discussion that aims to address the systemic barriers to accessing services among migrant workers, as a major gap in high-level discussions and policies around UHC.
The panel session will include perspectives and key-asks from representatives of migrant community networks, academia and civil society.

Time: 13:00-14:30 EDT (New York)
Venue: Lexington Hotel (10 minute walk from the UN Headquarters)

Migrant workers must not be left behind in pursuits of UHC and pandemic preparedness. Building on lessons from the pandemic, health policies at national, regional and global levels must be migrant-inclusive and address the needs and vulnerabilities of migrants.
The panel discussion aims to tackle the following:
Bring attention to the systemic barriers to accessing health services among migrants, as a major gap in high-level discussions around Universal Health Coverage.
