The IOM Mission in Ireland, together with the Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) in Berlin is hosting a webinar on the importance of data in the context of the current global health crisis, COVID-19, with specific focus on migrant populations. By drawing on knowledgeable international experts, working in the field of migration, data and public health, this webinar aims to raise awareness on the importance of real-time, innovative, accurate, and dis-aggregated data in creating a more transparent and clearer understanding on key pandemic-related trends, namely amongst populations most at risk.
