IOM Nepal Medical Health Assessment Center (MHAC)

Migration health Assessments are among the most well-established migration management services offered by IOM. They consists of an evaluation of the physical and mental health status of migrants for the purpose of resettlement, international employment, enrolment in specific programmes, or for obtaining a temporary or permanent visa.

Reflecting national differences in immigration and public policies and practices, there is a diverse range of assessment requirements, but the most common denominator is the need to ensure that the migration process does not endanger the health of either the migrant or the host population. We believe that migrants benefit from an improved standard of well-being, which enable them to substantially contribute towards the social and economic development of their home and host communities.

Globally, IOM has provided health assessment services to over 3 million migrants in more than 80 countries between 2001 and 2015. In Nepal, IOM provided health assessments and TB screenings to 19,000 migrants in 2017 alone. IOM Nepal has over 10 years of extensive experiences and is adhered to high medical standard. IOM is the approved panel clinic for a number of countries including the followings.
