Refugees : Commissioner Andriukaitis presents the Personal Health Record in Greece
On Thursday, during a visit in Greece, Commissioner Andriukaitis presented the "Personal Health Record" (PHR) to Greek authorities in Athens and to NGOs on the island of Lesbos, where he visited a centre for refugees. This document prepared by the Commission, together with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), will be made available at the Hotspots, to evaluate migrants' medical needs and help reconstruct their medical history. The PHR is accompanied by a Handbook to be used by health professionals.
