Yet for a domain where so much is happening and where more players (e.g. mobile network operators, technical service providers) and regulators are getting involved, there is still little information about the potential risks and corresponding solutions.

18th IAIS-A2ii Consultation Call on "How Supervisors Can Help Enable Access to Insurance for Migrants", 22 September 2016

Con frecuencia trabajan en empleos de alto riesgo y bajos salarios, tienden a quedar excluidos de la protección social y de la atención sanitaria en el país de acogida, y a menudo carecen del apoyo de las comunidades locales.
