Examples of reforms, new initiatives and campaigns to recognise and better support migrant essential workers in the COVID-19 response

About

Refugees and other migrants are part of the global workforce of essential workers responding to the COVID-19 pandemic: every day they save lives and contribute to our economies and societies. Yet their contributions can be hidden, their skills undervalued and their rights denied. These examples of reforms, new initiatives and campaigns to recognise and better support migrant essential workers in the COVID-19 response demonstrate that change is possible. It is now on all of us to ensure it will be lasting.

We are collecting examples of reforms, new initiatives and campaigns from across the world on migrants’ contributions to the COVID-19 response, in healthcare and beyond. The tracker dataset is publicly available and regularly updated, please send us suggestions here.
