FRA contributed to discussions on EU data protection law, migrants’ health data and fundamental rights considerations during a workshop focusing on data protection and legal issues.
The workshop formed part of a larger European migration health conference co-convened by the World Health Organisation (WHO) European Office and the WHO Collaborating Centre at the University of Pécs.
The meeting took place in Pécs from 7 to 8 October. The conference aimed for a clearer understanding of migrant health in Europe, with a view to improving the current situation, which is characterised by underdeveloped collection and sharing of migrants’ health data and a lack of a Europe-wide database on such data.
Discussions were centred on current gaps, barriers and challenges as well as the ways forward in the collection and sharing of migrants’ health data in Europe.
