Migrants’ health: Best practices in care provision for vulnerable migrants and refugees
|Description of call |
"Migrants’ health: Best practices in care provision for vulnerable migrants and refugees"
This action aims to support activities in view of the development of community-based care models to improve health care access of vulnerable migrants and refugees. Through facilitating the transition from institutional to community-based care and integrated services, it aims to identify innovative ways of reducing inequalities in access to health services, and promote social inclusion through supporting access to social, community/home-care, cultural or recreational services. Community-based health clinics (hubs) offer an opportunity to create health-promoting places. These care models can also support reorientation of specialists to general practitioners, to strengthen healthcare in primary care settings. This action will deal with compiled best practices in care provision for vulnerable migrants and refugees (including pregnant women, children and older persons), with a focus on psycho-social aspects, acute and chronic diseases, including communicable diseases.
