The Population and Poverty (PopPov) Research Network brings together researchers who are examining how population dynamics affect economic outcomes, primarily in African countries. The overarching vision is one of a Network where results, methodological advances, and policy impacts are shared across research teams and eventually translated into policy recommendations.

In this video, Alice Mesnard of City University London describes her research on health risks and migration, a rarely studied topic despite their important consequences for the planning, targeting, and effectiveness of health policies. This research investigates the role of migration in dealing with the risks of chronic and acute illnesses, injuries, hospitalizations, and communicable diseases that may not only affect the health of people but also their economic situation.
