Health and Migration Advisory Group Meeting

25-26 February 2008

This was the third meeting of the Health and Migration Advisory Group. The group was originally convened to provide advice and support on the issues of health and migration, which were prioritised by the Portuguese Presidency (July-December 2007). Forty-five participants attended the meeting including representatives from Member States, World Health Organization, Council of Europe as well as project leaders and participants from migration and health related projects from the Public Health Programme, invited experts and staff from the Commission services and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

The main objectives were to provide an update on recent activities in health and at EU and international levels; review and create linkages with current projects on health and migration funded under the public health programme; consider related EU policy developments in the areas of public health; migration, employment, equal opportunities and research; and exchange information and contribute to the planning and organization of future work on the topic of health and migration.
