Migration, Urbanisation & Health

This group seeks to examine the relationship between migration, health and poverty at nine INDEPTH member HDSSs with the aim of contributing to an empirical understanding of the dynamics between migration and health in Africa. 

The Multi-Centre Analysis of Dynamics in Migration and Health group, which is funded  by the INDEPTH secretariat through a Sida grant to INDEPTH, held a data analysis meeting on the determinants of migration in Nairobi, Kenya in February 2013. This resulted in the standardisation of the core micro-data produced by each centre. The group's first publication – “Health and Demographic Surveillance Systems: Contributing to an understanding of the dynamics in migration and health” – appeared in Global Health Action Journal, 2013, 6:21496 –http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/gha.v6i0.21496
