Inside the Global Refugee Pact

Earlier this week, the US—with just Hungary for company—opposed the adoption of a new UN pact to strengthen international cooperation on large movements of refugees.
IRIN dives in with an in-depth explainer on this and another recent agreement signed in Morocco, showing how heated rhetoric has tinged the process. The pacts aim to share responsibilities globally and ease the burden on the host countries.
Meanwhile, the WHO marked International Migrants Day yesterday by launching technical guidance on the health of refugees and migrants. Produced in collaboration with the European Commission, the series of publications address 5 areas including children and maternal health, healthy aging, and mental health.
