The Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN) is a trusted source of essential clinical information about emerging primary care issues that occur at the intersection of health and mobility. To best assist clinicians working with migrants, MCN provides a menu of services to meet a variety of needs. MCN engages in research, develops appropriate resources, advocates for migrants and clinicians, trains providers, engages outside partners, and runs programs that support clinical care on the frontline of migrant health.

The Knowledge Hub on Health and Migration (WHO) offers a platform for governments, programme implementers, academicians and researchers, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and civil society to build upon available evidence, and creates a platform for dialogue and critical thinking on this complex and interdisciplinary field. The platform works across five priority areas including strengthening the evidence available on migration and health, webinar series, summer school, policy dialogues and high-level summits.`

The Migration Health and Development Research Initiative (MHADRI) was formed on a need to build a global alliance of migration health researchers and scholars to provide a platform to share, collaborate, develop, advocate and disseminate research at the nexus of health and migration. Participation and support of researches from global south countries is a key priority for MHADRI. MHADRI was launched in 2016 by the Migration Health Division (MHD) of the International Organization for Migration, in partnership with several academic institutions and researchers.

The Migration Data Portal aims to serve as a unique access point to timely, comprehensive migration statistics and reliable information about migration data globally. The site is designed to help policy makers, national statistics officers, journalists and the general public interested in the field of migration to navigate the increasingly complex landscape of international migration data, currently scattered across different organisations and agencies.

Over the years, the United Nations of Economic and Social Affairs Department (UN DESA) has played an active role in the intergovernmental dialogue on population and development, producing constantly updated demographic estimates and projections for all countries, including data essential for the monitoring of the progress in achieving the MDGs and now the SDGs, developing and disseminating new methodologies, leading the substantive preparations for the United Nations major conferences on population and development as well as the annual sessions of the Commission on Population and Development.

It studies population dynamics and monitors demographic trends and policies worldwide. Population estimates and projections prepared by the Division for all countries on fertility, mortality, international migration, urbanization, and population size and structure are widely used by various entities.

The Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) Program has collected, analyzed, and disseminated accurate and representative data on population, health, HIV, and nutrition through more than 400 surveys in over 90 countries.

Since its inception in 1995, the Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys, known as MICS, has become the largest source of statistically sound and internationally comparable data on women and children worldwide. In countries as diverse as Costa Rica, Mali and Qatar, trained fieldwork teams conduct face-to-face interviews with household members on a variety of topics – focusing mainly on those issues that directly affect the lives of children and women. MICS was a major source of data on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) indicators and will continue to be a major data source during the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda to measure Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators.
