This technical guidance outlines current best practices, evidence and knowledge to inform policy and programme development in the area of health promotion for refugees and migrants. It highlights key principles, summarizes priority actions and challenges, maps available resources and tools, and provides policy considerations and practical recommendations to improve health promotion activities for refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region. The target audience is not just those within the health or immigration sectors but also all those with a central role in policy-making at local, national and regional levels, and across all sectors of governance. Clinicians, fieldworkers and other practitioners are invited to draw upon this technical guidance; however, it is not intended to be at a level that would inform their daily work.
