This health working group meeting will focus on migrants and healthcare in the EU.

In recent year, Europe has experienced a large influx of refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants. Many of these people have fled countries affected by war, conflict and/or economic crisis and are in need of different types of health care. While this puts pressure on national health care systems, the Member States and the EU now need to come together to address this public health issue, in order to provide migrants with the care they need. 

This working group meeting will shed light on;

  • This WG meeting aims to address:
  • EU Policy framework around migrants health care needs, adapted services, etc
  • H2020 Calls related to migration and health care issues of the migrant population (or something like this)

​We are now looking for regions who are interested in sharing their experience. If there is a health care provider in your region who has experience in providing care for particularly refugees or migrants, and would like to share best practices, please contact the ERRIN secretariat (info@errin.eu).  

We are also looking for a region that would like to host this meeting. If you have room for about 30 people and would like to host - please contact us (info@errin.eu).
