- Events in recent years have highlighted the vulnerabilities of the global system in terms of health, socio-economic well-being and demographics, among others. The word unprecedented would describe the Nigerian situation very well.
- Established in 1951, IOM is the leading intergovernmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does this by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.
- Pre-migration health activities (PMHA) are one of IOM’s most established migration management services.
- PMHAs are a set of procedures undertaken as part of regular migration at the request of host country governments, provided by Migrant Health Assessment Centers (MHACs). PMHA can involve a number of screenings, diagnostic, treatment or preventive services, as well as health-related travel assistance.
- The Migration Health Assessments Center (MHAC) in Nigeria became operational in January 2014 with two operational centers in Abuja and Lagos. MHAC has grown and is currently conducting immigration medical examinations for various countries such as UK, Australia, New Zealand and US visa applicants in Nigeria.
- The current socio-economic situation has resulted in an increase in migration which translates into increased demand for MHAC services. There is therefore a need for operational excellence to enable MHAC to deliver quality services.
- Achieving this will require being innovative, proactive and armed with enhanced critical thinking skills, partnership building as well as an ability to work independently. Staff will need leadership and coaching skills to enable them to cope and even thrive in today’s multilateral VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world. A tailor-made program such as this becomes necessary to acquire the skills necessary to carry out its mandate effectively. “Provide clear direction, lead by example and demonstrate the ability to achieve the organizational vision.” It is also expected to “help others realize and develop their potential” in line with the aspirations of the IOM Competency Framework, thus enabling them to be both adaptable and resilient in the face of emerging challenges. .
