Background and objectives
A team of online volunteers is expected to research the current immigration medical examination pricing strategies of designated panel doctors and medical centers in Asia. The mapping aims to identify the pricing strategies employed by designated immigration panel doctors and medical centers in Africa for the immigration medical examination of visa applicants to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States of America and other countries. Online volunteers will receive detailed induction packages and background materials, together with research guidelines. A dedicated staff member will be available via email or skype to clarify any doubts. Team Skype meetings will take place every Wednesday to report on progress and clarify doubts. This is a great opportunity to deepen your knowledge about immigration health examination of visa applicants. Online Volunteers will receive a Certificate of Appreciation for their contributions.

Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, 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 so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants. Under the Department of Migration Management (DMM), the Migration Health Division (MHD) has the institutional responsibility to oversee, support and coordinate the Organization’s provision of migration health services globally. These services aim to meet the needs of Member States in managing health-related aspects of migration, and to promote evidence-based policies and holistic integrated preventive and curative health programmes which are beneficial, accessible and equitable for vulnerable migrants and mobile populations. Through this assignment, Online Volunteers will contribute to establishing the baseline for IOM's competitor analysis in the region in the area of immigration medical examination to visa applicants.
