Migration and health

Recent events in North Africa and the Middle East triggered a dramatic increase in migration, which highlights the need to identify best practices and engage in a cross-national political dialogue on migration. Through the Public Health Aspects of Migration in Europe (PHAME) project, WHO/Europe is working closely with Member States to strengthen the health sector’s preparedness and the public health capacity to better address emergency-related migration.
