EQUI-HEALTH: Fostering Health Provision For Migrants, The Roma And Other Vulnerable Groups

Brief me

The objective of the EQUI-HEALTH action is to improve the access and appropriateness of health care services, health promotion and prevention to meet the needs of migrants, the Roma and other vulnerable ethnic minority groups, including irregular migrants residing in the EU/EEA. EQUI-HEALTH was launched in February 2013 by the Migration Health Division of the Regional Office for Europe of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The project is co-financed under the 2012 work plan, within the second programme of Community action in the field of health (2008-2013), by direct grant awarded to IOM from the European Commission’s Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE), through the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (Chafea).
