The Ministry of the Interior, through the National Population Council (CONAPO), invites specialists in migration and health issues to participate in the digital publication Migration and Health 2021.
The publication’s main purpose is to study current issues related to the health of the migrant population in the Mexico-United States and Central America-Mexico corridor and make it available to government, academics, civil associations, and the general public.
Short articles (4000-5000 words) will be considered, an External Specialized Editorial Committee will review them through a double-blind process (peer-reviewed). During the evaluation, compliance with the established publication guidelines, as well as the quality and relevance of the articles will be reviewed.
