Against the backdrop of leaving no one behind on the path to universal health coverage, this paper aims to:

  • Present information on barriers to health services faced by some migrants, in particular those experiencing poverty and social exclusion;
  • Acknowledge that some barriers are faced by multiple subpopulations and others are unique to migrants, and that both types of barriers should be addressed to overcome inequities;
  • Provide a framing for addressing these barriers in health systems strengthening for universal health coverage, and provide an non-exhaustive synthesis/scoping of existing evidence using this framing;
  • Highlight areas where more research is needed, to further contribute to the evidence base for leaving no one behind in progress towards SDG target 3.8 on universal health coverage
