Healthcare in transit: Quantifying the health needs of migrants across the Limpopo
Beginning in late 2019, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in partnership with the African Centre for Migration & Society (ACMS), Wits University, surveyed 1,375 people in Beitbridge (Zimbabwe) and Musina (South Africa), documenting the health challenges they faced. Participants included:

· Zimbabwean deportees coming through Beitbridge Reception,
· migrants and asylum seekers of several nationalities staying in Musina,
· Malawians using Beitbridge as a waiting area,
· the cross-border population living in rural Beitbridge, and
· different groups heading to South Africa via Beitbridge crossing points.

MSF and ACMS, in collaboration with the Migration & Coronavirus in Southern Africa Coordination Group (MiCoSA), will be hosting a discussion on the project findings and their implications, including what this may mean in the context of Covid-19. Discussants include:

- Vinayak Bhardwaj, Regional Migration Referent - Southern Africa, Doctors Without Borders (MSF)
- Faith Ngari, Future Families, Musina
- Dostin Lakika (PhD), field researcher & ACMS graduate
- Aurelie Ponthieu, International Migration Coordinator, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), Brussels

Facilitator: Jo Vearey, ACMS, Wits
