Agencies meet to discuss ways to improve migrant health

On 14 April in Copenhagen, FRA took part in the WHO Consultation with UN agencies and international organisations on the European strategy and action plan for refugee and migrant health.

The overall goal of the strategy was to improve the health of migrant and refugee populations. The meeting aimed to present and discuss the draft strategy, and to identify possible interagency and international cooperation in this area. FRA provided comments to the draft document and presented its work in the area of asylum, migration and borders, including the main findings of the March overview of migration-related fundamental rights concerns, which has a thematic focus on healthcare.
