Strengthen Community Based Care to minimize health inequalities and improve the integration of vulnerable migrants and refugees into local communities
Over the past few years, refugees and vulnerable migrants have been reaching the borders of the European Union, creating a new reality for the social and health systems of EU countries. In many cases they do not receive appropriate health and social care that best meets their needs. The objective of Mig-HealthCare is to improve access to health care services for vulnerable migrants and refugees, support their inclusion and participation in European communities and reduce health inequalities. Mig-HealthCare will produce effective community-based care models which will be focused on health promotion and prevention. These will be pilot tested in different contexts and countries across Europe. The project will also develop guidelines and tools to reorient health care services to a community level.
