Stepping up action on migrant and refugee health

Migrant health has risen high on the agenda of many European countries in response to the migrant and refugee crisis unfolding on Europe's Mediterranean borders. Since June 2013, the WHO Regional Office for Europe has conducted a number of assessment missions with ministries of health, and Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal and Spain have piloted a toolkit for assessing the capacity of their health systems to manage large influxes of migrants during the acute phase.
