IGHS is increasingly addressing the urgent need for a regional strategy to confront the humanitarian health crisis along the US-Mexico border. Last month, I visited detention centers and shelters near Mexico’s northern (Tijuana) and southern (Tapachula) borders. Many people are facing inhumane conditions, and academic centers are morally obligated to take action. To date, there has been no collaborative effort among humanitarian health leaders in Central America, Mexico, and the United States. Supported by a grant from the California Health Care Foundation, IGHS will convene a group of high-level stakeholders early next year to chart a response to the migrant health crisis.The future will continue to present difficult global health challenges, but with our 20-year track record of advances, I am confident that we will continue to meet challenges head-on and lead the field by example. Thank you all for your vital work and support.Warmly, Jaime
