New Eurohealth: Migration and health in the European Union

Regardless of their legal status, migrants can be at particular risk of poor physical and mental health; they may be isolated after arrival in their host country or be unaware of any entitlement to use publicly funded health care services. Even where available, services may not be suitable to the needs of many migrant groups. Most of the articles in this issue of Eurohealth which focuses on migrant healthare based on background papers prepared for the International Organization for Migration project ‘Assisting Migrants and Communities (AMAC): Analysis of Social Determinants of Health and Health Inequalities’ co-funded by the EU and the Portuguese Government.
